Re: Tripod bunkum.

Agreed. I rarely use a tripod and sell  very sharp 16" x 24" prints out of three galleries.

I haven't seen any difference at all between tripod and handheld with my D800e at the 400% peep provided I had a decently high shutter speed. Piece of cake!

Yep. I can also get critically sharp shots hand held with my D800Es (assuming a good lens) so the hackneyed old bunkum about mandatory tripod use must pertain more to caffeine addicts and congenitally nervous folks, I think. You should easily be able to get into "wow" territory hand held.

I do like to pixel peep, by the way and am very sensitive to unsharp images.
