The D800 doesn't represent any more file management for me than any other camera I own. Workflow is supposed to be camera independent. And on any given shoot I may have any combination of D800, D3s, D2x, D2H, D7000, or D200. The workflow and file management does not change one bit.

If you are living on the edge with your current setup, then yes, the D800 might be the proverbial straw.... I made the decision to upgrade all gear last fall. New iMac, new MBP, cameras, studio gear, the works. I'm set for the next 5-10 years. I may upgrade camera bodies, but I'm set for computing, glass, lights, etc.

You can't just upgrade one piece of the puzzle if everything is maxed out. So you're at a tipping point. I needed a system that would allow me to edit 1500 RAW photos at a time without breathing hard. That decision is now paying dividends.
