It certainly appears to be an entirely different animal -- very high resolution and probably less low light capability. I was wrong in assuming it would be a "logical" follow-on to the D700 -- a "better D700." Clearly Nikon sees the market differently.
I am very, very happy with my D700s right now. I do not anticipate buying a D800 or two of them as replacments. But I do see one probably in my future for aerial and location work -- the latter including construction photgraphy.
If I replace the D700 bodies for what I use them for -- photojournalism, essentially, it will be with a pair of D4 cameras. In the meantime, my D700 bodies have 40,000 and 6,000 clicks, so at age 67, they may fill the bill!
