So, I'm reading through the thread on possible D800 blur, and it got me thinking...
Is it meaningful to compare digital resolution to film? More particularly, does the 36MP have "more" resolution than a film SLR loaded with Velvia 100?
Which gets to my other question...back when I was starting out in the early 80's (manual focus, on film, on a Pentax, generally shooting Tri-X, and mostly through my Vivitar zoom), I don't remember thinking blur was a "camera" problem. If you got a blurry image, you either missed your mark with the focus, or your subject was moving too much, or you were moving too much. Mirror slap causing you to lose focus (as is discussed in the Nikon technical guide for the D800)? Never crossed my mind.
I guess my question is whether or not blur is a bigger issue with high-MP digital than it is/was for film, or if we have just grown accustomed to expecting a higher proportion of 'keepers' (back in the day, I might shoot a couple dozen rolls at a football game, and only two would end up in print).
