Is the D800 your first Nikon camera? How familiar are you with the different focus settings on Nikon cameras? You may need to experiment with different focus settings to see what setting works best in a given situation. My experience is I get better with each camera I shoot with the longer I shoot with a camera. You learn how the camera reacts in your hand (different focus settings, shutter lag, ISO response, etc). I can tell you the D800/e produces excellent files with proper technique.

Hello, I have been a professional photographer since 1974 working in the Commercial, Military and Education areas. I use Phase medium format equipment in my day job and Canon 5D and 5D11 personally. I recently bought a Nikon D800 with a Tamron SP 24-70 f2.8 for myself and after hundreds of shots I have yet to find a single one that I am happy with!

I have scoured the internet looking for information on achieving sharp images and downloaded as many real world samples as I can find and I have to say I don't think those are any better.

I am talking about hand held shots inparticular and although I'm getting on a bit I don't think I shake that much.

I notice that most recommendations are for higher ISO and shutter speeds than you might otherwise have used.

Here is a full size out of the camera jpeg for your comments:
