The MD-12 is a motor drive for older manual focus film cameras like the FM and the FE. I think you mean the MB-D12.

$169 for a spare battery sounds high. Only $100 for SD or flash additions sounds low -- most 16GB "UDMA 6" cards cost more than that, and a 128GB UDMA 7 card currently costs about $900.

Eventually, you'll also probably want a USB-3 card reader, which is inexpensive, and a way to get USB-3 onto your current computer, which may not be.

Toss in a LensAlign unit and a few additional terabytes of storage for good measure, and I think we'll be pushing $5000 fairly quickly.

So, yes, the D800 is not an investment to be assumed lightly. I'm probably going with the non-E model and passing on the MB-D12.

If you want to photograph a man spinning, give some thought to why he spins. Understanding for a photographer is as important as the equipment he uses. - Margaret Bourke-White
