Also with the D800's superior resolution, it can take a heavier beating from noise-reduction software (like neat video), and still come out with at least as much detail as you get with the quite soft MKIII. This of course also goes for the the D4 which is (IMO) just too soft from the get go.
If you are concerned with aliasing/moire Mosaic Engineering is set to release an aa-filter for the D800 quite soon.

On a side note, when you guys got your cameras, did you check the shutter count? If so, what was it at? I bought mine from a local store and the D4 had a count of 65, and the D800 had a count of 503. I've taken the D800 back and will receive a new one in the next shipment, and am debating doing the same with the D4.
Am pretty peeved that I received two camera bodies from a local store, and both had a large shutter count. QUOTE]
Large shutter count?
You should be thankful that they tested it for you.
When I sold my D1, it had pretty close to 1 million shutter activations on it.
The only work done was several sensor cleanings.
I would not worry about 503 activations.
Back to the subject:
I really like the D800 for Video and will be getting the Mosaic Engineering aa-filter

I would't call 65 activations a large shutter count.
