Thank you very much for the reply, though, my post was published for amateurs alike me, having Nikkor 12-24 lens, but Professors quick to eliminate illiteracy. Of course we all read the documents listed below and know that setting Nikkor 12-24 on camera D600 ripe for trouble but I wanted to check it out. My sin is curiosity. Yet, the truth is I have found out myself: the lens works great on the camera D600 in the range of 24-20mm. As for my emotional comment "Back to D200" it caused by random setting Nikkor 12-24 at the end value of f12mm. Concerning your reminder about the DX Crop Mode I should admit: it is not very practical. We get this opportunity for account of Nikon who tries to grasp the immensity.
Reference:
AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor ED 12-24mm f/4G IF Nikon Instruction Manual:
....these lenses can be attached to film based 35mm SLR, but will not work properly due to reduction size of the image circle.

DX Nikkor is designed exclusively for use with Nikon Digital SLR models. Design enables a combination of wider angle-of-view with optical characteristics that are optimized for Nikon digital SLR camera sensors. Comparable to that of an 18-36mm lens on 35mm size sensor format.
