I am thinking of ordering either the 800 or 800E, and am wondering if anyone uses either for shooting birds or wildlife? If so what is your experience?

I currently use the D300, and D7000, and needless to say enjoy the extra reach of a DX camera. I am intrigued however about the greater possibilities inherent in an FX body ... while I am primarily a bird photographer, I also shoot quite a number of abandoned buildings, as well as some macro work.

Thanks for responding.
