I know very little about the D800 (or D700) for that matter. For a long time I've been happily shooting away with my D200 waiting patiently for the D400. Well it seems that the D400 is close kin to the Great Pumpkin and now I'm eyeing the D800. Never had any real desire for FX format but if I want a robust camera body that is newer/more advanced than a D300s then there is the D800.

I have a modest investment in DX lenses that I am quite happy with and I understand they will work on the D800 (I could be dead wrong). Knowing little about the camera or the FX format I'm wondering what the trade-offs would be using DX lenses on the D800 as compared to the D200. If there are no major trade-offs then the D800 might be the way to go for me since I also have some pretty nice full frame lenses as well. Any thoughts?
