I got my D600 last week. I purchased a Sandisk Extreme Pro SDHC USH-1 Class 10 card, and even with that card, when reviewing images the camera seems to hesitate when pulling up images. Not that it's a long lag, but compared to my D300 it is much slower. On the order of 5 to 8 seconds before an image is displayed. I know the images are larger than the D300, but the lag was simply unexpected with the Expeed 3 processor and fast card.
Is it instant for anyone else, or is there a lag time when reviewing images.

I had the lag that you spoke of this afternoon. Image review is set to off, but straight after taking a nef+raw shot and while the green "accessing memory card" light was on, I got lag of a few seconds when pressing the image review button.
I've not been able to reproduce since, but it was definitely there. I'm assuming the delay was while the camera was processing the jpeg and applying some nr or adl trickery.
I always leave image review turned off in the Playback Menu, but I turned it on to see how it does. It is only a fraction of a second from the time the shutter completes actuation to the time the image is displayed on the LCD monitor. I am using a SanDisk Extreme Pro 95MB/s 16GB SDHC memory card. I have a card in slot one only, and slot two is empty.
Setting image review to 'ON' gives me quick reviews of an image just taken. The lag I'm seeing is when I'm reviewing images already taken on my own. Sorry about not being specific. I forgot there was a setting called 'Image Review'.
I'm not seeing as much of a delay today as I've seen over the past week when looking at images already on the card. Again, it certainly isn't a big deal. I was just curious.
I just tried mine and there is absolutely no lag time. I also had very slow cards in the slots. A 64 gb SanDisk Ultra, 30 mb/s in slot one for raw and an 8 gb SanDisk Extreme III, class 6 in slot two for jpegs.
It's not a combination that I would recommend. My buffer filled almost immediately during a shoot on Sunday.
