"RE: Nikon D800"

I will speak for myself, but I agree with Anthony. The D700 is not obsolete and will not, I believe surrender much value in coming months. Along with the D3 family, it has shared a spot as a premier "available dark" camera and nothing has changed about that. In my case:
-- I have two of them.
-- They do everything I need them to do, especially when dealing with low-level lighting.
-- They are paid for!
If there is a D800 in my future it will be for aerial photography, but I will need more of that business to pull me into that decision.
I never think it wise to buy the newest tool and THEN look for uses. I also like to let others be the "beta testers." By that I don't mean that I think Nikon is selling an unproven product, but the ideas of how best to take advantage of the D800/D4 family will come from smart experimenters like our fellow Nikonians. They will spend premium $$$, run the tests, and then I will buy -- if the new cameras do more than my D700s, and by that I mean, more of what I need.
For that matter, I don't think any of the Nikon DSLRs are truly obsolete. Obsolete means useless, unable to function. All were state of the art machines when they appeared and all took many, many brilliant and beautiful photographs.
