"RE: D5100 shapness"

Just out of curiosity why would a camera with a 16 mp sensor require a more precise technique than a camera with a 10 mp sensor? I’ve seen many posts suggesting this and I don’t understand it at all. I know I’m basically sloppy and probably won’t get much better as I get older but I didn’t think there would be that big of a difference between cameras. My wife and I just got back from two months in the south west and took hundreds of pictures each. I used my D5100 with a 10-24 and an 18-105 lens. She used her D60 and an 18-200 and consistently got sharper pictures than I did. Most of the time she was holding on to a leash with a 7 month puppy on the other end and she still got better pictures. When blown up hers are always a little sharper. Mine are always a little soft on the focus. I try to use a solid hold and watch my shutter speed in regards to focal length but I finally went back to my D60 and my pictures improved. I bought my D5100 as a refurbished factory demo. with 1378 actuations which seems like a lot for a factory demo. Well, back to my original question: is it harder to get a good picture using a D5100 than a D60? Thanks for all the input.
