D800 - love it and hate it

Thoughts on the D800 from a D3x owner:

Love it
  • Resolution
  • Dynamic Range
  • Same battery as D7000 (no forking out on more batteries or chargers)
  • Sensible remote options (10 pin on D3x is major PIA to attach, especially with cold hands!)
  • Size, weight
Hate it
  • Dramatic drop in D3x used values!
Will I get one? Possibly, as the cost-to-change from the D3x is still quite low. Would like to see some authorative reviews, for example from Thom Hogan, before making a final decision, and would also like to be sure that initial production issues are cleared up.
