Hi, I tested the D600 and D800 in a store today. I've been using a D300s for a couple of years (following a D70s and 20 years of analog Nikons)
The D600 seems like an entry FX camera, an unusual thought, but it's not like a natural upgrade from D300(s) as I see it. The D800 is far closer to the D300(s) in usage, although I could still live with it. But you need to adapt a bit. I don't mind having full auto and scene modes, great when the family is using it. But I am deeply missing the AF-On button. Assigning the AF-L button is not as handy.
The grip is thinner but ok, not as great as the D300. The D800 seemed to have similar grip as D600.
Rest of the camera is great though, i loved the new AF-mode and liveview functions. Especially the sound level meter.
Still, I might go for a D700, so I can use the grip from my D300s, and a nice lens.
Btw, I thought the balance of the D600, even with the kit lens, wasn't too good. The kit lens was surprisingly compact and offered decent blurry background despite of the aperture. The 24-120 however was too expensive, bulky, heavy and fragile I think.
