That is pretty much it. Furthermore the d800/e records details that other cameras cannot, right? These additional details are visible at 100% and also visible at scaled-down percentages as well, because other cameras simply cannot record them. I hate to say it, but the same is true for lens aberrations and imperfections. Some say they can accept the trade-offs of zooms on the d800/e, but to my eyes the always persistent difference between zooms and primes is made far far more evident and as a consequence is unacceptable on the d800/e.

That's because you only use the center of the glass, where the lens is sharpest. For ultimate sharpness across the frame, primes are the best choice on the D800.
