"RE: D800 and Soft images"

I have been reading this with great interest as I am entertaining the purchase of a D800 to supplement my D2X. All this info on shutter speeds is concerning. My question is this. If D800 users are having these issues, what are the MF guys shooting 40-80 MP backs doing with lenses that have a top speed of 1/500 second? Are all these folks using a tripod and Mirror Lockup for each and every shot?

Not trying to stir the pot, I dearly love my D2X and my D2H as well, but if I have to use a quite fast shutter speed, tripod, and/or possibly Mirror Lockup, would I not be better off with a Pentax 645D?

I know im missing something here so please inform me where I am going wrong. While I am not nearly as heavily invested in the Nikon system as lots of you, it is a somewhat sizeable investment that I would like to utilize. Perhaps I am somewhat skewed in my view as I try to shoot at the lowest ISO since I was a Panatomic-X shooter in my film days.

Any and all input would be most welcome as a D800 is a sizable investment for me.

My area of interest is Landscape photography as well as old farmhouses, barns, post offices, etc.
