I'm currently very seriously contemplating buying the new D810 however, I'm reading a LOT of reviews and information on the D800's 36MP sensor and everybody seems to preach you:
A) Need to use very good "technique" when hand holding these cameras and
Plan on using shutter speeds in excess of the typical 1/focal length to get sharp results.
I own a D700 an a D7100. My question is this. Since the D7100 has a 24Mp sensor across a DX frame, wouldn't the pixel pitch and density be identical to the D800 and, if so, wouldn't hand-holding the D7100 represent just as much of a challenge as shooting with a D800?
Very much hoping some of you D800 guys can chime in on this topic. At this point, it's the only thing that is giving me slight pause as I hate using tripods (mostly) but I do really enjoy my D7100 and do find it is maybe a little less forgiving than my D700 but not overly so.
Thank you all!
