Sorry Gene if I missed your message. 
Low light is, of course the #1 issue. 

The D4 is out of my price range, but so was the D1x when it was new. I guess 
this should be my next target body, after waiting long enough to buy it 
cheap. In the meantime, I can still buy used D1x Bodies in the couple 100's 
of dollars.
