Well I got my chance to work with the D600 AF and a group of skiers. I set AF-C and 9 Pt Dynamic for the whole day. There was plenty of slow-paced action on the approach and then several opportunities to shoot burst sequences on the way down.

Overall I am very happy with the results - in one 12 frame burst only one of the images (the closest) is OOF, the remaining 11 are as sharp or better than I could of hoped/have been used to with my former D300s. Obviously there was no focus point hunting with the 9 Pt Dynamic setting. The light wasn't great so I'm doubly pleased with the D600's AF response, and it's just so gratifying to see what the D600's dynamic range can do in mediocre light, it makes totally usable images out of lost causes.
