Honestly, it would make a LOT more sense do do one of the following:

1. Buy A D7000. Better low noise performance, better image quality, no loss of "reach".

2. Buy a D800. Better low noise performance, better image quality, slight increase in "reach" due to DX crop being over 15MP.

3. Buy a D600 and a 1.4x tele. Better low noise performance, better images quality, similar reach.

Doing a DX crop on a D600 makes very little sense to me.
