I've still got a preorder for a D4 that hasn't been fulfilled yet. I've also considered the D800. Now that people have both bodies in hand I thought it would a good time to ask this question. If you could have only a D4 or only a D800 which would you choose?

Now I think it would be interesting if everyone answered according to their individual needs but if you're wondering what my criteria is in case you want to advise me:

I'm strictly amateur. I do general work (as in, portraits, landscape, macro, wildlife, and whatever else that pops up). I do not do studio work or careful studies of things. I'm not a pixel peeper and 95% of my images are digital display only. I do not use supplemental lighting for the most part and I have good lenses (24-70, 70-200, etc).

Thanks guys! I've been on the forums here for 6 years and it's really the only photo forum I enjoy participating on.
