"RE: D600 low light AF"

There is an important distinction here. Your camera was able to use F1.4 to focus even if you weren't going to shoot at that aperture. had you been using an F2.8 or F4 maximum aperture lens (as many D600 or D7000 owners might be) your success rate would likely have been less high on both the D7000 and the D800.
