"RE: D3s, used D3x, D800, or D600 as back-up for D4 - any thoughts"

I don't do airshows, but my event shooting, like airshows, requires rapid reaction to what is happening. My prime requirement for backup or alternative bodies is commonality of controls. My D300/D700/D3 and now D4 all have the controls I commonly use located in the same locations. So I can react to what I am seeing without having to remember which body I am shooting. Only the D800 and D3X meet that requirement. The D600 does not.

So my recommendation is the D800. The D3X (used) is now going for used D3S prices (around $4000), but (like the D600) does not offer that much more in resolution than your D4.
