At the end of the day, none of these factors matter a great deal to the final image, but higher quality kit is a pleasure to work with.
With the D700, using the MBD80 battery grip and NiCads I can get around 11 fps. I suspect the D800 would be similar. I have no idea why Nikon sell themselves short on fps figures.
By the way, I have no interest in HD video, so I can`t really help you much. Maybe you should stick with the D700...
I am just after a bit of advice for my daughter on keeping crabs. Basically, I don`t know a great deal about them personally.

Is it not better to get the exposure right first time, without having to post process? I occassionally overexpose/underexpose for effect, but there is no substitute for getting it "right" with a camera in your hand, as opposed to a mouse. With modern camera sensors, this should be a relative...
