I'm sorry, I really don't see what you're getting at. Let's say that there is no motion blur whatsoever in this specific image. Does that prove that when viewing a higher MP image at 100% you don't need higher shutter speeds in general than if you had a lower MP image?

I've stated that I think this image is great in terms of sharpness even at 100%, but that doesn't really disprove the myth because it could be that the shutter speed, VR, and handholding abilities of the OP could handle the increased demand.

Either way, if the point of this discussion is to disprove a myth, then we should talk about the principles involved rather than one specific good example. I don't think anyone has claimed that you can't produce sharp images with the D800 viewed at 100%, but rather that it would be somewhat more demanding than if you had fewer MP.

Yes I looked at the full res version as well. Not sure if I get the point you're trying to make here, but wouldn't you say the downsized version is less blurry than the 100% one?

Where do you see blur? Don't mistake blur with out of focus elements of the image, or on the fly itself. To my eye there is absolutely no blur in this image - looks rock solid to me!
