I think we are still far off from the point where the camera sees detail in the shadow that the eye can't.
Most likely, but the d800 still amazes...
(In full disclosure, I am a Canon shooter and own a 5D3. But, I must admit the d800 is pretty fascinating with respect to its DR)
Looks like $3500.00
Dont see much use in the sliding clips on the strap really
The clip is there to restrict where the camera slides along the strap. A taller person might want to move the clip 'down' so the camera hangs lower. I do sometimes move it depending on what's hanging - with a standard zoom and if I'm walking around without kids in tow, I set it higher so the camera hangs at the side of my hip. But with a white zoom or with kids along, I prefer it lower so the camera hangs at the small of my back - a little further to reach, but better balance for the big zoom, and less in the way if I need to grab one of my daughters.
ordered the black rapid rs7 anyway, mainly because the sun sniper is bulky
There will be a difference in the depth of field, if you frame the shots identically the FF sensor will give a shallower DoF, by a factor of 1.6 when comparing FF to APS-C. So, the APS-C will give a depth of field equivalent to setting the aperture on the FF camera 1.3 stops narrower (because stops are a base-2 log scale, and the base-2 log of 1.6 = 1.3).
As a side note, this isn't bokeh. Technically, bokeh is the quality of the OOF blur, and is a property of the lens and the elements in the picture. A crop sensor affects the quantity of OOF blur.
Well, ok, that's a simplification, since a crop sensor can affect bokeh with some lenses - in some cases, vignetting results in OOF blur spots at the edge of the frame that have a cat's eye shape, which is less pleasing than a round shape, and to the extent that using an EF lens on a crop body reduces vignetting, it will result in rounder OOF blur spots, which would be considered better bokeh.
Hope that helps...
