"Sure, viewfinder magnification..."

I'm unwilling to commit to cropping on an FX camera as a strategy precisely since I spend a lot of time waiting for the light to hit a bird in just the right way. I don't want that image to be 25% smaller, which it will be in the D800's viewfinder.

Now, if you look at Bill Claff's DR chart regarding the D800 (DX) vs. D7000, there's only a marginal advantage to the D800. I'm quite confident that we'll soon see a DX camera from Nikon that will simply be better for supertelephoto work than the D800.
