>24-85 might not make the D600 justice,

I have this combo, there is no issue with the 24-85mm VR. In fact, it test sharper across it's focal length range than the 24-120mm f/4.

I also have a 24-120mm 3.5 VR and have been testing it on the D600 - I am getting good results and you can buy these lenses for a fraction of the new version of the lens.

First image, 24-85mm VR. Second, 24-120mm VR old version. Both on my D600.

Edit to add - it appears to me that the D600 has a very mild anti-aliasing filter, my images are requiring very little sharpening.
