Nikonrumors has translated a Nikon France Q&A about the D4 and D800 . . . this one answer jumped out at me:
Q: Are there significant advantages to use stabilized lenses with D800 36Mp sensor to reduce micro-shaking (like 24-120 f4 instead of AF-S 24 -70 f2.8) ? A: To reduce the micro-vibrations, the shutter is equipped with an anti-vibration system.
My simplified version: Q: "Does VR help with 36MP?" A: "VR is built into the shutter."
I am reading a lot into this one comment, and it is an imperfect translation. I'll read this in French after another cup of coffee, but has anyone ever heard of an anti-vibration system in a Nikon DSLR body?
