I am now at a time where I must make my purchase.
For months I have been thinking of the D4, but recently have seen some exquisite images from the D800. I shoot around 90% indoor sports (basketball and hockey) but I already own a D3....and it certainly does OK. I shoot everything at iso3200 or slightly less but would love to jump up to ISO 4000 or even 5000 and not lose quality. This would be a BIG help.
My other issue though is in hockey, I shoot lots of photos at the other end of the ice, so to be able to crop heavily would be huge. I do gain a bit of resolution with the D4 over the D3 but nothing like I'd get with the D800.

Sooooo....... I have 2 questions:
1) Will the D800 give me D3 or better quality images at ISO 3200+
2) Aside from the 4fps vs 10fps.....is the D800 a camera you'd use for indoor sports ??
