I personally think Nikon kitted the 24-85mm to lure potential APS Canon owners to Nikon FX instead of the Canon 6D though I am sure it boosted Xmas sales of the body as well.
At any rate, for some perspective, at one time the price on the D700 dropped to a low price that I never bought at, then went back up about the time I decided I wanted the lower price. It stayed at the higher price throughout the remainder of the sales life of that camera.
So to me, without a doubt, the D600 is worth it's current asking price.
