The point you won't seem to admit is that a high resolution camera (in this case a 36 MP Nikon, in the future likely an even higher MP Canon) can deliver very sharp images at the pixel level even handheld.  Here's another example for you to not understand (and this one features a Canon 7D and 70-200/2.8 IS  ).  Handheld at 1/400th:

- Full frame image (showing focus point):

- Cropped full size image (to get under the 20 MP gallery upload limit):

100% crop (800 pixels x 500 pixels - note this is slightly behind the actual focus point):

Sharp and clean photo.  You miss my point.  You should not read I mean you cannot get sharp D800 photos at 100% cropped level thru hand-held (on what shutter speed?).  I just said (read carefully), you'd need better technique such as using higher shutter than lower pixel amount 24mp D600 and 22mp 5DIII at respective per-pixel level.  I'd argue that 5DIII with 300L/2.8 II can take the same photo at 1/200 or even 1/150 for the same per-pixel level sharpness.  After of all, you used 1/400 from 300G/2.8 VR lens.

More pixels, higher crop factor needs higher shutter to get the same per-pixel level sharpness.

I didn't choose 1/400th - the camera did as I was shooting aperture priority - Any camera would do the same to get a proper exposure in that scene with the chosen aperture.

1/400 with the help of 4-stop VR, nothing special.

I didn't say it was special - it just was an image to show that in normal, everyday shooting conditions you can get excellent pixel level sharpness with a 36 MP camera (and,remember - this is a much higher magnification/smaller portion of an image than a 100% crop from a 22 or 24 MP camera would be - so you are capturing much smaller/subtle detail: you don't seem to get that at all!).

That one is the sharpest one among all you posted in this thread.  I didn't suggest you cannot get sharp photo but just said you'd need a better technique to fully leverage 36mp potential.

If he did that, we might severely cut ourselves on the additional sharpness. He's already done very well as is...no need to tempt fate and risk a blood bath

I believe you're wasting time.  No mention the samples you provided such as bird or car are not that tack sharp anyway to support your claim

Actually he did. Perhaps a 40D pic would make it easier for you to see the obvious difference.
