Update and apology to all

I posted this in a reply in this thread. I am afraid it was buried and most will not see it.

I just did some hand held testing using the D810 and 24-70 f/2.8G at 1/80. Pixel level sharpness was excellent and did not have the blur my testing a day ago was showing. Too much caffeine probably, don't know how to explain it but I still have the blurry pictures from which I made my erroneous statements. I am embarrassed and humbly apologize to anyone I may have misled.

My very recent experience is that with 1/80 shutter the blur rate at pixel level examination for me is about 10% (70mm fl). I then shot at 1/40 shutter and my blur rate was about 50%. Not good for some but I now know my limit.
