"For who have high ISO performance cameras like D800 and D600, is it really the lack of VC important?"

Yes.  Very important.  Also, People sometimes think "this OR that" -- but in the case of the Tamron, its "this PLUS that".  VR is incredibly useful at anything over 60mm when handheld.  That being said, you ADDITIONALLY have the f/2.8.  So if you hand hold under slightly darker room or city-night light, the VC + f/2.8 will be very nice.
