I am waiting for some user feedback and to physically get my hands on the camera. Since I am a prime lens shooter I will have to purchase, at a minimum, one new Nikon G lens (the 35mm G1.4). Probably two. That will afford me with a considerable amount of flexibility.

Right now, I a quite satisfied with the D7000 results. Under any conditions, I do not see myself trading in the D7000 (for at least a few years) if I get the D800. I will keep them both. With that said, if the reviews of the D800 are stellar from this group, then I can see myself owning both the D7000 and D800 sooner rather than later. I won't buy the camera without lenses that conform to my shooting style. All the best.
