I would expect a higher resolution image at 100% zoom will be zoomed in tighter but containing much finer detail than a lower resolution image. A higher resolution image will look blurry as it opens but if you wait for it to fully open it will be crystal clear.
I see no reason that someone coming from a D200 or other DSLR will have any issues with a higher resolution DSLR. Someone who doesn't know the basics of a DSLR and its focus modes, etc. might.
I just don't want anyone to be scared of high resolution cameras. The D800 images I've seen friends post are truly amazing in the amount of detail they contain.
