No, it probably wouldn't. Stupid Dpreview won't bring these up 1:1 but I can tell from your 30% views that these are sharp, and this isn't surprising, since these images conform to the reciprocal rule of thumb. I especially like your second image: absolutely magnificent. I never said the reciprocal rule doesn't apply to 300mm (600 FF). What I saw was a poster showing what could be done hand-holding at 1/30 of a second, something I already knew: it would most likely produce motion blur, and it did, but he still found the image useful. I would have tossed it, or showed it as an illustration of what can't be done hand-held by the normal person.
