Well ... I've been fascinated and (re)educated in about equal measure by the discussions here on this D800/D800E sensor's resolution and the diffraction issues - but isn't there a (fast) shutter-speed threshold that we could bring into the equations which would (mostly) eliminate the worries about hand-held vibrations?

When I say "hand-held vibrations", I don't mean shots taken while riding a vehicle or even while panning - but given the rule-of-thumb for VR (and even for VR II) which says(?) that for shots taken at shutter speeds faster than 1/500th sec, our VR brings little or no benefit, couldn't this principle be extrapolated to give us a similar "rule-of-thumb" to use when assessing whether a D800(E) photo is too "shaky" to be accepted as a fully representative example of its class?

For example, I see that in Peronne's shot of the two sprinters - FSU_Relays_2012_D80_0461 - on an adjacent thread, he used a shutter speed of 1/2000th second. Isn't that shutter speed fast enough to eliminate all concerns - such as yours Gator Bob - about non-tripod-mounted D800 shots? (Regardless of the subject matter.)

If not (and I'm genuinely interested in the science here), then what shutter speed would be fast enough?
