Which is better? A Nikon D600 or D800? Mostly using it HANDHELD & with low light.

I think it is the same as D600 if you resize your D800 image to 24M ?

Please correct me if I am wrong
a 24M image resized from 36M should be sharper than a native 24M image.

Resizing an image from 36M down to 24M would, in my opinion result is a less sharp image than one from a native 24M sensor. Taking an image 7360 x 4912 pixels and reducing it to 6016 x 4016 pixels is taking 1.23 pixels and repackaging it as 1 pixel.

The 36MP result will be sharper - resampling if properly done will not lose information compared with original sampling at the same rate. The main benefit of the 36MP will be in the higher cut AA filter, which will allow better microcontrast in the final image.
