The other factor here is that the D800 and D600 have picked up a significant increase in dynamic range - nearly 1 1/2 stops. In that context, the loss of 1/3 stop of synch speed makes relatively little difference for fill flash as you can recover more than that from the image using ADL in the camera or software if a post processing approach is preferred.
