I´m not sure what does the crop thing brings as an advantage in the D800? Why I should buy an expensive FF camera and than crop it down to a APS-H or APS-C? Than the finder is masked and not better than from a D300 or a 7D. The image quality and backround blur is the same as I get from a 60% cheaper camera!
If Nikon needs these modes to mask a slow processor than it´s explaination I do not except for a 3000 Euro camera. I think personally the Canon sRaw and mRaw modes are much more useful.

By the way, I understand the 400Euro cheaper price as a sponsoring for the new PC nearly everybody needs to handle 36MP raws on the computer. On high ISO you will get files with 60-70MB, good luck on location with your notebook....

This is a very academic discussion. I suggest to rent the TS-E24mm L II to try it by yourself. I did this last month and it is an incredible lens! With a tilt shift you get the full quality into your file, every PS action to expand is a compromise.

Before we  discuss how fast the lenses needs to be, we need to discuss what you want to do?
My kids are to fast for a slow 2.8 lens! My wife is joking about my "mans handbag" but she likes the pics from my 50mm 1.4 and 85mm 1.4 Sigmas on my old 40D. The 5d M3 is preordered the crop is even not blury enough and I want FF just for that. If you shoot dinosaurs in the museum than f=8 is enough!You will get the bones in the back razor sharp.   8)

I´m anotherone filling my closet with camera backs and backpacks.  ;D
the Kiboko looks very nice but I´m living in Germany it´s extremly expensive to import by my own. I did that only once for a "Shootsac" but at the end it nearly doubled the cost. So I will try to catch one at my next visit to the US but it´s always a bit difficult to order something online to a hotel. A source for Germany would be perfect for me.
