I'm not a huge fan of the re sizing for comparison either. It makes it easier to compare but it creates a false impression. In daily use, the D800 will be used at 36MP so it needs to be tested at 36MP. If we only care how it performs at 22MP, then Nikon should have thrown in the 24MP sensor which would have made it faster with smaller file sizes (which I wish they did btw). I want to know at what ISO my 36MP image falls apart so I know what to shoot at. Why the hell would I care when a 24MP image falls apart when i'm shooting at 36. Why would I want to know how the dodge viper would run with a v6. I'm sure it would give better fuel economy and a more relaxed ride, but I bought it with a v10, i'm using it with a v10, so I want to know how it handles with a v10.
