"RE: D600 Lens mount"

greetings, lens and camera support is a very complex issue. there are numerous nikonian threads here that can help. if your nikon lens comes with a collar and foot to use with a tripod - use the lens collar and then screw the tripod head into the cast-magnesium foot of the collar. but you should already be thinking about a proper tripod, a proper ball-head for the tripod, and proper individual plates for your nikon cameras and your longer camera lenses. if you do use the nikon lens collar, please make sure it is tight around the lens. nikon collars allow the lens to be rotated independently, so you can rotate the cam body for vertical or horizontal shots.
it is a matter of proper balance for your camera and lens combination, and as such, each nikon camera lens/combination requires a different foot/plate dimensional adjustment for proper balance on the tripod ball-head. for more relevant info, I would suggest visiting http://reallyrightstuff.com
