try to be safe whatever streets you are shooting on. the d800 is only 6 oz heavier than the d600, and there really is no reason not to use the d800 for street shooting, except for replacement cost if stolen. while the d600 does have a higher frame burst rate and perhaps some low-light advantages, the replacement cost of a d600 is also something to think about. also be sure not to use any rear screen live mode displays with any cam on the street, as you will act like a beacon at night, and also will need both your eyes on the display, losing peripheral vision and taking longer to take a shot. bring along someone familiar with the streets where you are shooting and who is familiar with the language and culture where you are traveling. the current nikon d600 supports four more menu languages than the d800, for what it is worth: Brazilian Portuguese Greek Hindi Hungarian the d800 and other d600 menu languages are Arabic Chinese (Simplified and Traditional) Czech Danish Dutch English Finnish French German Indonesian Italian Japanese Korean Norweigan Polish Portuguese Romanian Russian Spanish Swedish Thai Turkish Ukrainian good luck with your street shooting wherever you may wander.
