I dont expect the D800 will be replaced soon (and I like it that way). however as I am sure Nikon watch Nikonians for feedback I thought I would tell them that the D800 exceeds my abilities in photography about 300%. the sensor is great and AF is great the body is great. THe limit on me taking better photos is me!
however what would cause me to buy another DSLR is if it had more modern technology (like the D5300).
So I noticed when Nikon announced the D5300 they said the following:
" Meet the first in an exciting new generation of Wi-Fi® enabled, ultra-high-resolution Nikon HD-SLRs: the D5300. With built-in Wi-Fi for instant photo sharing to your smartphone or tablet, GPS and mapping, ...., an extra-large swiveling Vari-angle LCD and more."

They are the 3 things I need in a camera. It is stupid that my coolpix has this and therefore I can be more creative with shots due to the vari-angle LCD and I don't have to plug my GPS unit into it and WIFI is common in everything I own (apart from my most expensive gadget - the D800)

So basically I vote for the D810 having the three things above. It would be my perfect camera then. I would definately buy one NOW!
Having been a member of Nikonians for years I am sure there will be many that will not agree with the above but I cant see why I need to carry around all these adapters and monitors and cables in 2013. It would be intolerable in any other technology that is supposed to have mass appeal.
In summary D800 = great camera!!
Photographic technology = 9/10
Non photographic technology = 2/10
