I currently own a D7000, and now have been given an opportunity to purchase either a D800E or D4, my choice. My lenses are all VRs, a 16-85, 80-300, and 70-200. Having read many posts here, I'm drawn to the low-light capability of the D4, but the 800E seems to be a more practical choice in all other respects. I mostly shoot family portraits, people and their pets, kids' birthday parties, maternity, and am the designated photographer for our neighborhood association's events throughout the year. So far I've been in only about three low-light situations where it would have been nice to have the D4. On the downside of the D4, I think I would miss the reach of my telephotos.

I'm still having trouble making up my mind about which one to get, so will appreciate anyone willing to weigh in on my dilemma.
