Yeah a well known math.  higher pixel density, you need a higher shutter to deliver similar per-pixel or 100% cropped sharpness.  I am not even trying to dispute resolution but just on better technique.

Or can your D800 thru heave cropping from a 200mm or 300mm lens deliver such photos belows?  

...is that if the Nikon 500 / 4 VR II were at least as sharp as your 500 / 4L IS II (and even if it weren't quite as sharp, but close), that the 36 MP of the D800 would have resolved better than the 22 MP of your 5D3.

But you know that's not what I am talking about, right?

Not always easy to tell. You do jump around quite a bit and often to unrelated concepts.

My 10mp 1D3 airshows photos proved amount of pixels are far less important than native FL lenses, shooting skills and most importantly AF performance and overall speed.

That's a good example of "unrelated" to the topic GB was speaking about. Perhaps you misunderstood his intent

Just not a hard concept to understand, really -- unless one is *actively* trying to be obtuse.

18mp or 22mp is sufficient to most people especially someone like me....

That is very true. The type and style of ones shots/output often won't really benefit much at all from an improvement in sensor quality. Nothing wrong with that at all, and many can learn from that. Improvements in composition and technique are often a bigger bang for the back. F10 and 1/250 for example. On the other hand, some really can take advantage of improved sensor tech and can make the improvements obvious. Those folks are few. There work though is impressive and a joy to see.
