Hear the points about the limitations but how often are you really shooting above 1/4000th? Wasn't too long ago pro cameras couldn't even get to 1/4000th. Wouldn't keep me from buying it. Assuming its low ISO performance is good, this could be a nice body to get. $900 more for a D800 is a lot (over 40% more) when you are talking $2100. $4-500 might be worth swallowing but almost another grand to get a D800 is not worth it. Not going to jump until I see some more thorough reviews but I would be surprised if this wasn't my next Nikon.
Speaking of reviews, you ought to read this
