Re: 36Mp sharpness

Indeed. The goal is to shoot without thinking much about resolution. But if you need max rez get the tripod out of the car's trunk or find some support. Someone's shoulder works wonders for tele work (for an example).
Subjects moving can't take real advantage of extreme resolution anyway!

Anyone will get "sharp" pictures out of a 36 pm FF sensor. Getting a picture's worth of 36 mp's without a tripod and proper technique (MLU, optimal f-stop, good glass, etc) is not likely to happen very often.

I'm aboard the Canon ship. I bet that even my 5D2 can't deliver me 21 mp's worth of IQ without using mlu and a tripod.

On important assignments and since the film days, I often treated my 35mm slr like a large format field camera. It paid.

I think that's true. The real benefit, other than crowing rights, of ownership is likely to be limited to those like me, concentrating on photographing things that don't move about a lot. Because I can't carry much these days I'm often without a tripod and with the best will in the world it isn't easy to get the full resolution out of 12Mp let alone 36.
