Well because of lower pixel density, my 22mp 5D3 will have higher percentage of 100% cropped or per-pixel level sharpness than your D800 when shooting at the same technique such as hand-held. Then the gap between 5D3 and D800 in resolution will be smaller than if we shoot at better technique such as both on tripod. Which means as I said as well as DPR review said you will waste 36mp potential.

So the point you're actually making is that if ones photographic techniques are poor, they would better be served by a lower pixel density camera. I can see how you might come to that conclusion. They could also go ahead and get the higher pixel density camera and simply downsample to 22mp till they get better. That way they'll have high resolution available for the few times they get it right. Best of both worlds and not limited.

My opinions are my own and not those of DPR or its administration. They carry no 'special' value (except to me and Lacie of course)
