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):

No problem, let's play the same ball   I reduced uncropped original photo to 2000-pixel wide.  5D3 with 100-400L, a much inferior zoom compared to the top 300G/2.8 VR prime you used, so not exactly a fair-game.  Imagine if I use 400L/2.8 IS II, hehe.

5D3+100-400L full scene

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

Now here is 100% cropped on the pelican ONLY.  It's full size of the pelican.  I took at ISO 250 and the wing is under shadow.  You took at ISO 140 and the wing is sunlight lit.

5D3+100-400L, 100% cropped.

Ummmm... that is not a 100% crop as defined by every photographer I know - it is a cropped portion of the full size (non-resized) image - like the second image that I posted and not the 3rd image I posted which was a 100% crop (though it still appears not to display at full size in the post itself - close but not quite).

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

Again, there is no difference by showing a small portion of photo and entire photo at original size that may not fit into your monitor.  You're pretty confused at this part.

...and the actual 100% crop/1:1 pixel view of my 36 MP image of a much smaller target in the frame (my photo) looks as sharp or sharper and is more detailed than yours ( I opened yours so I could actually see the 1:1 pixel view as, again, what you posted here is not a 100% crop) - sort of goes against what you claim is possible without a tripod for a 36 MP camera, doesn't it?
