I did, and strongly preferred the D800.
Others may come to the opposite conclusion,
or be ambivalent about it, but handling matters,

The D600 is lighter and fits my wife's hands better.
For me the handling of the D800 is so much better that
I can hand hold it much longer at an Event before getting tired.
The narrow groove in the D600 grip pinches my fat fingers.
I also like the button layout better.

I have not noticed the High ISO being any better on the D600
and I have the frame rate set for 3fps so my wife does not take double shots.
So, for me everything is better about the D800.

You need to get "Hands On".
