"D800E Learning curve"

Hello Experts

Amazon has this great combo deal with $200 off on the D800E and $200 rebate on 24-70 2.8 and 70-200 f2.8. I am planning to buy the set for a trip to India next month (and still use the D90 and D300 as backups).

Currently I mainly used D30S and my walk around low cost 17-250 Tamron gives me very satisfied pictures (I also have Nikon 60MM f2.8, 80-200mm 2.8, 50mm 1.8 and Tokina 11-16 2.8). I can imagine the D800E and 2.8 nikon lenses will yield very good pictures of the Taj Mahal in full moon.

Questions:
1. If I buy the D800E how long does it take to learn? I will have the camera deliver to Singapore at the end of the month and have about 2.5 weeks to learn how to use it.
2.How are the performance of the Nikon FX 24-70 and 70-200 lenses on D300S. Regardless of the D800E, I am going to buy the lenses any way. The combo deal will save me some money or I have to buy some good used lenses on for sale forum
3. For the trip should I stay with my 300? Buying large size memory cards, L plate for the ball head, card reader... are very expensive in SGP so I have to plan ahead.

Thanks for your advice.
