Re: It is maybe just a question of the post processing...
For the record, I'm not the one who invented the idea of tripod being imperative for D800. They discussed it in Nikon Forum.

Any high resolution cam needs either a very short shutter times or tripod for sharp images.

If you are going to shoot landscape with a pol filter hand-held on even a sunny day, you will run into trouble:

iso100 - 1/40s: least noise but far from pixel sharp due to camera motion

iso200 - 1/80s: probably the best compromise, not 100% sharp but might be good enough

iso400 - 1/160s: sharp but noise and banding kicking in, no reserve in the shadows...

I don't have steady hands so below 1/80s I start the produce some scrap with my DP1. Below 1/50s the amount of waste is so high that I usually don't bother shooting at all. I might be too rigorous about this but an unsharp image is not a keeper.
