"RE: Is the D800 with the grip 5fps raw?"
My guess is that the camera store owner was repeating wishful thinking from some people who are trying to justify the purchase of the grip and battery.What they are probably seeing is what we see in the chart in post #9 above.In 3 seconds Bernard got 13 shots (4.33 FPS) Shot #1 and shot #5 are 1 second apart. I tried this today and got the same result without the grip – using the EXIF data timestamp - my shot #5 was exactly 1 second after shot #1 (shot #1 = 10:31:06.50 > Shot #5 = 10:31:07.50)So, if I shoot a burst of only 5 shots - one could argue that I got 5 frames in one second. But if I continued to shoot the time stamp shows just 4 frames per within the next second.Generally if I think I may need to shoot a fast burst I just go to 1.2 cope mode to get the extra frame per second. You can hear the difference between 4 and 5 FPS.
