Why does D800 need sharp primes but D7000 works great with kit lens?

As a matter of fact, this is all the exact same concern trolling we were treated to for months on end when the D7000 first came out.  Pro glass necessary, massive tripod, Teutonic "shot discipline," etc., etc.  Nonsense.  The D800e does not need pro glass whatsoever to produce Google Earth results with humble lenses stopped down a bit.

Pro glass is wonderful, don't get me wrong, but every lens Nikon makes is also terrific on this camera.
