Because of the high megapixel rating, getting sharp images is challenging on the D800. Nikon recommends only certain lenses should be used with the D800. I noticed that with my D800, as long as I use one of the recommended lenses, I get images with great apparent sharpness

There is also a supplement.  I always try to shoot at ISO100 because that's where the widest dynamic range is.  When I go over ISO6400, I will use my Df.  I mostly use the D800 for focus stacking because of the super high details I get with the sensor.

For really large images that require critical sharpness, I purchased a Graflex Super Graphic with a Rodenstock Sironar-S lens.  If I start using the Graflex more, I'll get a digital back for it.
