in fact 20mp is all that you will extract from D800 with less than perfect lens or with perfect lens but at ISO 800 upwards (give or take).

How did you arrive to this conclusion?

What is interesting is how you failed to make any effective counter argument.

You don't need a perfect lens (which still does not exist) to take benefit of the higher resolution of the sensor.

Who said you will not get advantage from that sensor?

The improvement can be seen with ANY lens, as long as you have not reached the maximum resolution of the lens.

While that is correct, it does not defeat the quoted statement.

It is really basic, isn't it?

Basic it is, it does not prove the quoted statement wrong.

In any case, most lenses (at least my lenses) outresolve the D800. It is an Internet hoax that you need new lenses with the D800.

No one said anything about need for new lens. Chill.

Not really sure how you come to that conclusion.

Did you really think you got 36mp resolution at every iso and with any lens?

Of course you get 36MP at EVERY ISO. Every single pixel is used at ANY ISO, so if your camera has 36MP then all of those are there even at ISO6400.

You are either unable comprehend the meaning of that statement, or intentionally playing dumb.
