High pixel density cameras such as D800 does need to use better technique such as on tripod and use best lenses in order to fully leverage high pixel density potential.  Sure it doesn't have more blurs than a 22mp camera at the same export size but then you'd waste its 36mp potential.

...that's true of any camera with any pixel count.

Meanwhile my larger-pixel 1DIII (10mp) and 5D Classic (12.8mp) are fully capable of generating very sharp photos when view at 100% cropped or per-pixel level or to print to 19x13" or even 26x18" sizes.

Except it's not the 100% view that matters -- it's how sharp the final photo appears at the size it's displayed and the distance from which it's viewed, assuming detail even matters.

Blurry?    1DIII + Canon 100/2.8 macro (non-IS version) hand-held .

So you're saying that all we need is around 2 MP?  The above photos are displayed at 2.5 MP, 1.6 MP, and 2.3 MP, respectively.

Or two 100% cropped airplanes snap-shot from a 10mp camera, blurry?

How ironic that you are displaying your 100% cropped photos at 6.7 MP and 6 MP.
