Is high resolution a disadvantage (besides file size etc.)?

Like many others I have been considering if the D800 or the D600 is the right upgrade path from my trusted D700. I have tried to read what I could find on this issue.

Some contributors state that the D800 is a more demanding camera regarding lens quality, camera shake and diffraction.

But frankly I don’t understand this issue at all. To make the results comparable, I think you have to compare the same output size, for instance by downsampling the images to the same size.

Then I can’t see why lens imperfections (determined by pure optical issues), camera movements (mechanical movements) or diffraction (quantum mechanic wave issues) can in any way look different in the pictures from the two cameras.

Or have I misunderstood something?
