It is a given that the 800e is sharper that the 800 and with a lil bit of sharpening the 800 is right there with the D800e. The new body will be primarily 90% for use in the studio shooting senior portraits and for outdoor portrait sessions also. I will use it at times for some personal landscape projects. I may use the video fearure from time to time for little projects but nothing I would charge a client for. I currently use a D3s. ...D800 or D800e?
