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.

Seriously, where are you getting these information?

Possibly one of Ken Rockwells pearls of wisdom ?

A good comparision of the D800 jpeg at 100% crop & downsampled to 20MP crop is here.
