Am I overthinking: D800 and R2400... now I need a new printer?
I use a printer for having a legacy of my photos, not necessarily for framing (I am a serious amateur with emphasis on landscape/outdoor). Framed stuff gets jobbed out to a pro. So, am I overthinking that I now need a new printer because of the camera?

Are you going to make prints that are bigger than your 2400? If not, are the color renderings insufficient? The main difference between a 2400 and a new 3000 (same size) is in the use of the orange and green inks to provide wider representation there. It's fairly subtle, although the difference is there.
In the main though, unless you're going to make much bigger prints, I don't the D800 has creating a need for a new printer. Remember that the latest 4900/7900/9900 have almost exactly the same resolution as the older printers.
This is particularly true since your printer is essentially only a proofing device, if your final output is sent out anyway.

Always nice when logic prevails. What's frustrating is that I would print my own final stuff if I didn't continually encounter so many speed bumps along the way in getting to a good printed output. There are so many variables that there isn't enough time in the day to figure it out. Gotta spend some of that time taking photos! Thanks
