The number of clueless people buying the D7000 probably taught Nikon a tough lesson in overestimating the reasonableness of customers. But it really is Nikon's fault there was so much frustration with the D7000. They promoted it as a do-everything camera for beginners through advanced. It is no D90 which was a remarkably tolerant camera for a broad range of sloppy or poor technique.
The D800 will test the skills and knowledge of even advanced users if coming from docile cameras like D90's D300's or D700...or the most tolerate, D3.
At least Nikon seems to have realized the PR problem they created by not having a technical guide like this for the D7000.
Canon users also had a lot of problems but their cameras were out with higher pixel counts longer so, with time the complaints dwindled. Now, long after its release the D7000 users are not complaining much any more about blur. Apparently Nikon is worried about who are pre-ordering the camera, a lot of first time DSLR buyers including video shooters. The tech guide should make people aware of potential problems with technique or accessories.
