I second or third all of the above. Last fall I wanted a Nikon for a trip to the Great Bear Rainforest on the northern BC coast. I wanted to capture the animals with the feel of the moss and wet mist so I bought the D800 mainly for the 36Mp sensor. The cropability was also part of my decision. Coming from a D300 I had to rethink my technique a bit. These photos were taken from a zodiac slowly floating up a river – 1/350, f5.6, ISO 1600, 70-200 f2.8 lens. The NEF images were saved as JPGs via the PS “save for web” command. They were zoomed to 25% for full frame, 100% to get a feel for how the mist looked, and 150% to show the cropping possibilities. No sharpening or anything else. The heart shaped mossy branches were run through Photo Ninja and some NIK filters. My desire was to capture the mist and the trees and rocks in the mist. I think the D800 pulled it off.

You can’t go wrong with either camera.
