Thanks for your continuing updates and images. I can foresee ordering an Otus as a post-retirement gift for myself, using a bit of tax-deferred savings. Hmm, a D4, a D800E, and an Otus; that should keep me occupied for a while.
(I may well acquire a D800E before retiring, if the financial planets align properly in 2014-2015.)
Canon 5Ds R/7D2/7D/5D/40D/1D2N; Nikon F6/D3s/D700/FM3A/Coolpix A. Lens selection undergoing changes; some favorites: Zeiss 2/135 APO Sonnar, Canon 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS and 135L, Nikkor 14-24/2.8G and 200/2 VR.
