I am currently the owner of a D700 and considering getting the D800 in the near future.

I have read all the rave about the D800 in this forum. Now that the D800 has been out for a while,I still have a few questions :

1- Does it make sense to use it in 25Mpixel mode , knowing that my computer hardware|software will struggle with much larger pictures, until I upgrade my computer :when using silver FX now with 12 Mpixel it is already pretty slow,
Or any of you using the DNG converter either in CS or LR to work on smaller size pictures?

2- Are many of you using it also in DX mode (do I get at least the quality of the D7000)? instead of just cropping.

3- Do you see bottlenecks in your image processing workflow because of this huge picture size increase?

4- Do those of you who see a marked difference with the D700 mostly print or is the quality obvious on high resolution monitors also?
Thank you in advance for your input.
