Now that there has been a bit of activity out there and the D800 is in a few lucky hands, I was hoping to get a discussion started for reasons NOT to buy a D800 to replace or add to my existing D300s. Let's assume the money has been saved up. I shoot architecture (interiors and exteriors for real estate) and also some weddings, sports, landscapes and wildlife. I also shoot quite a bit of HDR (up to 9 images bracketed with my D300s). This would be the primary camera for general use.

We know it is an awesome piece of technology. So, play devil's advocate and give me the reasons to NOT plunk down that bag of cash.

Best regards,
