Valid points I see. Thanks for the speedy responses. The reason i'm even considering it is for these couple reasons:
1. Almost all new cameras (even entry level cameras) have somewhat accurate colour reproduction/ white balance etc.
2. Everyone nowadays knows how to use Lightroom and PS
3. Most average joe's today know how to expose 'properly' and if not, the cameras sure does a good job.
Now i've been looking into taking a different (and by no means new) approach to shooting. I don't want the pictures I produce to look similar to a guests picture simply because he/she has a nice camera and knows a thing or two about editing.
I've been following this one guy in particular, as a means of both inspiration and learning, Gabe McClintock. His work, surprisingly, is very simple (in terms of gear) and in most cases is just a matter of shooting under and pulling highlights back from the shadows. I've seen a few other people do stuff similar but i'm thinking of something along those lines. My D800 was damaged some time ago and i'm considering getting a new one for this very reason, but I don't want to make a hastly purchase without getting some reviews. Otherwise, I might get a used D3s or even 2 D700's.
