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

I just don't get the phrase "in our country" surely it is between you and your retail dealer - just find the right one.  Here in Sydney Australia there are number of camera shops happy to let you try a display camera, not quite Yodobashi where hundred camera bodies and lenses are lay on tables for you to try out - surely if they know that you are a genuine buyer then they would go out of their way to help you get the right gear - because a happy customer is always returning for more.

Regarding motion blur - VR only helps you steady the rig, it could not stop the subject motion - for that you must increase the shutter speed - VR does not help here.  As the D800 is heavier than the D600 wouldn't it be better at reducing camera vibration ?
