I am a family and child lifestyle photographer - meaning I shoot moving targets (ie, kids under 5), often in low light and sell images printed up to 30x40 (usually smaller). I currently have a D300s and am unhappy with the noise at low ISOs in low light situations as well as the lack of crispness in certain pictures (I do use mostly a Nikkor 24-70/2.8 so pro glass).

I want to upgrade and was holding my cookies for the D800 and then it turned out to not be EXACTLY what I wanted. I need good resolution but great noise handling and fast/accurate auto-focus.

Do you recommend getting the D800? Looking for a D700 on the cheap or shelling out the big bucks for a D3s? Thanks!
