Did I get it right that way?
- less noise
- higher dynamic range
- according to http://www.dofmaster.com/dofjs.html better DOF for FX ... ? (Hyperfocal @ 827,3m)
- larger RAW buffer
- CF slot (we got lots of fast CF cards)
- better battery
- longer shutter life (expected)
- ?!? ... what else ... ?!?
- 1,5x Crop (but I guess my Lens isn't sharp enough to take advantage of it ...)
- more Gigapixel (but maybe not the Quality of FX as Lens is the limiting factor)
So I guess it's clear that FX is the way to go?!? Just not quite sure if the higher Price of the D800 is justified in relation to the D600?!?

I use the D800 for Gigapixel panoramas. 2 years or so I stumbled over an adaptor that allows me to use Hasselblad lenses on my Nikon bodies. I still had my old Hasselblad equipment in a camerabag, which was no more used since all things went digital. With the D700 it was already a wonderful way to take panoramas. With the D800 you have jet more possibilities. Recently I bought a 500 mm f8 Hasselblad Zeiss Tele Tessar which cost me only 290â‚¬ on ebay. As mentioned in some posts above it's like using a FX lens on a DX sensor. You use only the the very center part of a medium format lens and get good results.

Your first post I do agree with.....it will take longer (even up to 1,5 to 2 times as long to be precise) and you gain about 30% in resolution, and indeed shooting with 2 or more (the more the merrier) camera's is advisable....but having said that....when shooting Giga's unfortunatly you can rarely stay on the same spot (most high rises have roofs covered in machinery or you only have clear view from the edge, etc. you should know). So in order to be quicker multiple camera's are used anyway (some on the same tripod/head.....like some Clauss Rodeon heads do), but mostly on different heads to shoot from various parts of the building (in this case the BT tower in London). Shot with 4 7D camera's.....and 4 big shot tele's and 4 Clauss Rodeons to shoot about 12.000 pictures per camera, per day.
And your second post is also correct.....in fact I can use all those glorious Nikon lenses on my OM-D as well (and I do) a great tele is a 80-200 f 4.0 I own (bought for a few bob of the Interweb).
Now before you start indeed with 4 D800 you'd be quicker.....but again you'd not get the 320 Gpixel resolution with the same glass you needed 1.3 times longer glass and longer means heavier and also more photo's. As I said these people aren't half assed.
