I don't think anyone claims that the pictures will be worse.  I think the statement is: "In order to utilize the full resolution of the sensor, you need to... bla bla bla (insert bragging here)".

Hence the perception that the D800 is unforgiving. I've even heard Doug Kay on TWIP say, "I'll only use my D800 on a tripod", which to me is total bunk.  Most APS-C cameras have a much higher pixel pitch.

For me, the D800 is the most forgiving camera I've ever owned, mainly because of the dynamic range.  I love it because I'm a klutz.
