I simply ask you: How many amateurs will rigorously follow the procedures that the Nikon Technical Manual lists to ensure quality images from the D800/800E?

"At the high resolutions offered by the D800/D800E, even the slightest camera motion can result in blur. Lesson 1: Use a Tripod. Use a tripod to reduce blur when photographing static subjects. It should be as sturdy as possible; avoid extending the legs or center column farther than necessary. A large head helps keep the camera steady. Lesson 2: Use Live View. The mirror is raised prior to shooting, reducing blur.At the high resolutions offered by the D800/D800E, even the slap of the mirror can sometimes be enough to blur photographs. In live view, the mirror is raised well before the shutter is released, helping keep blur to a minimum."
