On a detail the notion of 300 seems to be a printing industry requirement based on laying down the C, M, Y and K inks each at the maximum image resolution of the eye at about 12-15 inches of about 75. 75 x 4 colours equals 300.

150 can be OK in an inkjet and sometimes looks slightly sharper than 300, though with less tonal detail.

Comparing D3s to D800 the D800 has, with a good lens at optimum aperture and base ISO, about 20-25% more file resolution and better tonal separation though, as a rule of thumb, you need to print bigger than about 20 inches wide to see the differences.

We all aspire to take great photos but may always achieve this perhaps due to a lack of application, a lack of knowledge, or even a lack of talent.
The best photographers probably work quite hard at their photography.
