Not a one handed camera if you want good sharp shots. Tough enough getting crisp sharp shots with two hands let alone one handed. Much more of a pro body then the DX D200 and with it being full frame it has the body size to match. Quite alot stuffed into that camera you know. Mine is on a tripod 50 to 75% of the time for landscape shooting. I use the NEX 7 as a light weight carry around camera these days. At least for me my D800E is not used as a carry around camera. Many folks purchased this camera not knowing the issues of size.shutter speed restrictions. Most importantly it performs the best on a tripod with mirror lockup and remote shutter release.
Since I have my own large format printing business I have the D800E for those super large prints in my gallery and for that it makes sense.
Unless your printing large (24"x36" My definition of large) or cropping, the D800 may be overkill for you? Maybe a D7000 or D5200,sure would fit your hands alot better.
