I partially agree with his statements. I do notice that I shoot faster shutter speeds to get razor sharp images with my D800 (or use a tripod). But if you shoot the D800 identically to how you'd shoot a 12MP camera, then any apparent loss of sharpness would be equivalent to the 12MP camera if you downres the image to 12MP. Just don't expect to get super sharp 36MP images with anything short of super fast shutter speeds or strict adherence to proper shooting techniques. The D800 magnifies errors, so what looks acceptable with a 12MP camera may not look OK when you have 3x the pixels magnifying your shortcomings during shooting.
