We just had a long thread, where Neil's advice remained that based on his experience with D2H 4mp and D200 10mp, that if you needed the reach the long glass was more of a IQ increase than was adding the extra 200% of pixels (going from 12mp to 36mp). And speaking from experience for small birds you need the 500mm on a D400 not the D800 and buy a blind and a song playback device while you are at it
