I'm a D700 and D300 owner and have gingerly contemplated the possibility of "upgrading" to a D800 and either retaining one or both of my other two bodies. As I've read in this forum much good information and candid comments on the functionality of the D800 and simplistically compared its specs to the other two bodies, I've found to my surprise (at least based on the stated measurements reported in DP Review) that the D800 is about 150 grams lighter than the D700 and, remarkably, with the D700. Lighter than the D300. Should this be a concern given the reputations of the D700 and D300 for structural integrity and just plain sturdiness?
