I tried my D800 hand held for a long time and moved to tripods. My handshake is more than average, this camera is not forgiving. It is a different kind of camera. I tried to photograph San Francisco from a moving boat and had to do some post processing to make the images reasonable. Since the pixel area is much smaller, the smallest issue seems pronounced, this includes lens quality. Sadly, we have now shifted from a sensor limited system to a lens limited system. And performance of lenses on the D800 is very different to how they performed on other bodies. I would not use the 24-120 lens on this body.
