You do know that was humorous and poking fun at everyone, including myself, right? Just checking, because sometimes people don't see it.

Since you live in Florida as well, it should be "all extremists should be taken inside and shot", do it outside and you get in trouble

When is a good time to come to Florida to visit you?

The only good time to visit Florida is October through March, when it cools off. Roughly 70F in the afternoon right now, so I'm outside as much as I can.

My experience completely differs, suggesting that a much steadier hand is required to get optimal IQ from the D800 vs the D700.

+1
I do miss my D3 and especially the way handled. I don't however, miss the size and weight of it. But like some others have stated the D800 is way less forgiving. For me anyways.

If you want results that at least as good, or better, than what you got from a D700, then no, it's no harder to shoot at all. If you're going to downsample from 36MP down to 20MP or 16MP so you can get richer color information and a better 16MP file, then no, there's no additional challenge to the D800 at all.

But yes, you may need to change habits, improve technique, or do something else, if what you want is to get the best possible results out of that 36MP sensor with small pixels so you can make a very large print out of it.

There is no universal "right answer".

Reads like riding against the current, just like a photographic Quixote...

Surely a 5 mp camera would replace my 6x6 120 hassy... the d800 did
