I've just got to chime in here too. I moved over from Canon to get the D800 and it is really excellent. The large megapixel count is really useful and I want to give a quick example.
I was trying to shoot small garden birds recently. This was in the open and you cannot get too near them, also they are really small!
I used the 70-200mm f2.8 VR II with the cheapo Kenko 1.4x converter.
The original photograph looks like this:

The 100% crop is this:

I used this for my final image:

I have heard (personally) a few comments about how 'you don't need 36MP' etc. I think that these images really refute that (and I am sure that better photographers than I can produce even better examples.)
