I'm glad that my original question generated a lot of discussion. When I originally posted it, I was ready to pull the trigger on a D600.

Reading the replies, and handling a D600 in the store alongside a D7000, I bought a new D7000 (upgrading from D90, which is still a great camera). Here are my purely personal reasons:

1) I like the smaller size of D7000. I like shooting while travelling, and not being a youngster anymore, a smaller, lighter camera is easier to carry around my neck while walking around all day long than a bigger full frame camera.
2) I didn't like the smaller area of the viewfinder covered by the D600's 39-point focus sensor array in FX mode. It's fine for DX, but I feel it's too small for FX.
3)Cost. New software. I don't believe earlier versions of Photoshop than CS 6 will be able to process D600 NEF files. Body more than twice the price of D7000 body. Lenses. I mainly use two lenses all the time, both DX. I don't have the extra Dollars to replace my lenses at this time to get the most out of D600.

I'm convinced D600 is a great camera, but I'm not ready yet to jump to FX. My photography is a hobby I'm passionate about, but it's a hobby, and I have to keep costs in check.......
