From what I've seen and played with the jpegs that are floating around... The D800 seems to do well with higher iso values... iso 25,600 can be used in small prints (4x6) if real world pics turn out like the one I fixed up. I'm not scared of the 36mp, if iso performance turns out to match the D700, then I would say spend the extra $300 for features you may not use right now but might like to try later. Always is nice to have the most updated AF system (same as D4), 2 frame HDR in camera, up to 9 frame bracketing, etc.. etc... just my 2 cents.... I pre-ordered the D800E so I'll see if it worth it... If all turns out well then I will sale my D7000 because the D800 in crop mode is still 15mp.... so want need a DX body anymore....

Here is that pic I fixed:
