I know its personal preference, but i have never found Nikon bodies (or their buttons) to be overcomplicated.

I haven't had a proper play around with a D800/e but if the controls are based on its predecessors then they are (IMO) pretty intuitive. I'd rather have the buttons than having to delve into the menu in a rushed situation, and of course you can always program the functions to suit your needs.

Interesting about the grip though. I always use a grip on my cameras (unless its built in like the D4, obviously) for convenience and (more importantly) for comfort/balance with longer lenses, so that would be a concern for me if i was to replace the D700 which has a slightly too small grip for my liking

On a few occasions recently, when I have tried to access to the menu, I get an egg-timer symbol symbol that stays for around ten seconds. I would say it has happened four times now. Obviously not good to wait that long when trying to change something quickly but could it be an indication of something wrong? Just wondering if any other users had experienced the same thing?

have you tried to access the menu immediately after taking some shots? I am just wondering if it is buffering or something similar

I can confidently say it's not a buffer issue. It has the latest firmware by the way. I don't recall if it exhibited this behaviour before the update, well not around 10 seconds anyway. More like 1-2 seconds.
