Now that we have a 36MP D800 on hand, I keep pondering this question: How big can you print your finest D800 pictures (commercial photo print)?

I looked around, couldn't find any precise answer to this one. I do mean precise, in terms of a mathematical formula to let us common mortals to work out the limit of this 36MP.

I understand there's a print quality (300dpi -- photo quality, 200 dpi -- sort of good, 100 dpi -- you have to stand back and look, ... that kind of cofactor to consider). Is there such an equation to consider the print size in terms of MP size + print quality (in dpi)?
