Not sure what to make of the 1/500 and 1/1000 requirements being listed in this thread. I'm not saying you wont get additional critical sharpness but I've taken many handheld photos on my D800 at low shutter speeds and couldn't detect any blur @ 100%. Here's a thread I created back when I first started shooting my D800 with some handheld samples in the 1/50 to 1/80 range.

Agree with this. By the end of the time I owned my D800E I was perfectly well able to get decent hand held photos. What the D800E was revealing of more than other cameras was issues with the operator (and I include myself in that).

I believe the lower vibration mirror/shutter of the D810 to be less unforgiving of poor technique. However, to prove that proposition it will require someone to run the kind of tests you described earlier.
