The new D800 has 36 MP.
Will this make any of my pictures look sharper when printed at normal sizes?

I understand that cropping to a DX size should be similar to a DX (D7000) camera and that for large prints ? > 30 inches you may want this.

I have printed up to 20 x 30 inches with my D7000 and the prints to my eye were superb, in fact superb enough to win a contest with > 300 entries.

At normal print sizes (11 X 15) can anyone tell if you shot it with a 12, 16 or 36 MP camera?
