Me too.  I strongly believe debates even heated should be allowed as long as nobody violates DPR rules.

If he can let go of his blind Canon loyalty,

Not true, that is ONLY your speculation.  I never deny Nikon DR advantage and D800 resolution advantage.  I only dispute that you do need better technique to fully leverage higher pixel density camera such as D800, not just I said but DPR review said as well.

and you needed better technique going from the original 5D to the 5D2/5D3 as well if you wanted to maximize the benefit of the extra resolution - but it's not that hard to do and doesn't require a tripod all the time either.  Here's a handheld D800E shot:

- Full frame Image (resized to 50% as the original image is too large for DPReview Gallery which allows a max of a 20 MP image):

- Heavy Cropped Image (not reduced in size - so you can view at 100% if you want to):

- An actual 100% crop (a 400 pixel x 500 pixel portion of the full size image):

and his uneducated fascination with 100% crops as a measure of the IQ of the displayed photo, then there is hope for him, as he seems otherwise cognitively capable.

Well, don't assume you're a photography authority.  There are too many self-claimed "experts" in DPR forums.  That's why we need discussions and debates.  Don't jump on conclusions.

That said, the purpose of my posts is not to educate him, but rather in hopes that others reading who might be enlightened by the resulting exchange.

Educate me?  What a joke!  Who are you, Ansel Adams II? So let's the debates continue...
