"RE: D600 VS 7100?"

The D7100 has my Focus Peaked (Sorry couldn't resist!), as many have stated in 1.3 crop mode the focus points go right up to the sides if not quite the corners!
There are however, some Caveats in the Autofocus department that are just as important as number and positioning of sensors that some are not considering (Oh Leonard where are you!).
With longer slower lenses like the Sigma 50-500 for instance that is as much as most peoples wallets can stand, are the tables turned? It's never as clear cut as it seems at first is it?
A summary below:

D7100

Nikon Advanced Multi-CAM 3500DX autofocus sensor module with TTL phase detection, fine-tuning, 51 focus points (including 15 cross-type sensors; the center focus point is available at apertures slower than f/5.6 and faster than f/8 or at f/8), and AF-assist illuminator (range approx. 0.5 - 3m/1 ft 8 in. - 9 ft 10 in.)

D600

Nikon Multi-CAM 4800 autofocus sensor module with TTL phase detection, fine-tuning, 39 focus points (including 9 cross-type sensors; the center 33 points are available at apertures slower than f/5.6 and faster than f/8, while the center 7 focus points are available at f/8), and AF-assist illuminator (range approx. 0.5-3 m/1 ft 8 in.-9 ft 10 in.)

By the way I'm not saying one is better than the other just pointing out the differences, ok?
