One thing we rarely see over in the wildlife forum are images captured with D800's. I'm wondering if it's the frame rate although it's not much off the D700's. Also, since journalists rarely print an image over 8.5 x 11 (except for full 2 page and full on newspaper cover images) would 36 MPX's be insane overkill? Or, is there a solid benefit from the ultra-high res besides the ability to deeply crop?

Just wondering as my previously somewhat controlled NAS has crept back...And, I'm looking for a high ISO, low light body without spending 6000.00. And, no I don't want a D600 for myriad reasons.
