I know this has probaly been asked before, But as I'm about to spend in the neighborhood of 5k on a new body and lens, I just had to get a little reassurance one more time.

I was an advanced amatuer with film cameras (Leica M6 mostly) - did a lot of my own darkroom work, etc) specializing in environmental portraits. But now I'm retiring and I want to do wildlife - birds - stuff like that. So, time to go digital. I've got a nice pair of zoom leses that I bought a few years ago along with a D70. The D70 had problems and I got busy with other things in life. So i never really played with it. However, I did invest in both the 17-35 2.8 and a 28-70 2.8 auto focus zoom lenses - figuring the camers would advance and I'd replace the d70. But good glass would always be good glass.

Now it's time to get a great new body and a 70-200 lens and a 1.4 teleadapter.

I want to make big prints - at least 2 by 3 feet. So I'm thinking the denser the better - which leads me to the 800. But which one would be best for me given what I want to do ad where I'm coming from?

Thanks,
Frank (who will own one or the other by next monday...)
