D600 minimum shutter speed - hand held
I currently have D800 & D700.
I mostly use 24-70 F2.8 on D800 as I need to flexibility of a zoom (as a wedding photographer). I try to avoid using D700 as image quality is so much better on D800. The problem is I need to keep shutter speed up to 1/160 sec to ensure consistently sharp images on D800. I can easily shoot D700 at 1/80 sec and get sharp images. I'm wondering if D600 can be used at lower shutter speeds than D800?
Has anyone used hand held? Does D600 test your technique as much as D800 does?

How are you judging the sharpness of your images?
The old 1/fl rule of thumb was really related to print size, not image resolution. I'd expect the same size print from D700 or D800 to magnify camera shake exactly the same amount. You should only need to change your rule of thumb to account for greater enlargement, regardless of what camera you're shooting.

If you are looking at pixel level sharpness then the D600 or any 24mpx camera (DX or FX at same field of view would fall somewhere in between.
As Larry suggests, when you look at it in terms of standard print size then they are all equal, based on the basic geometry.
