B&H have one listed as for D4, D800 and D600 - B&H # VEGSPND800 Mfr# GSP-ND800 Not Giottos, tho. The reviews mention a top panel protector, as well and fault this offering for not fitting the shape of the top of the D600 well.
Matt & Hendrik... many thanks for your replies. I've opted for the Giotto's over the Vello as it has adhesive problems over time. My previous two Giotto's had no problems with temperature and humidity.
Ben... Thanks for your reply. I did see the black boarder around the Giotto's. On my previous Giotto's protectors, the boarder could block some of the screen info/image if not properly aligned when being installed. And with that in mind, I'm going to give the Giotto's a "go" and what see what happens.
The Really Right Stuff (RRS) camera L-plate doesn't fit with the Nikon LCD cover whereas the Kirk does. As I prefer the RRS products, the stick-on Giotto's should accommodate the RRS L-plate. I will be ordering the RSS L-plate soon and hopefully the whole package fits.
The Giottos SP8306 does not fit the D800 properly, the black border is too wide and cuts off some the image. This design was made to fit the Canon 5D, not the D800 regardless of what Giottos says. I bought one and returned it. The only LCD protector I found to fit is made by GGS. Dave Jolley

Attached is a photo of my D600's rear panel, the RRS L-Plate, and the Giotto's protector. As you can see the SP 8306's black boarder (adhesive strip) does cover some the LCD's info. I positioned the protector so the upper right corner's info would not be obstructed. And as you can see, the bottom row's info is halved. This line of info can still be read by tilting the camera slightly upward.
This protector's package is labeled as "fits" the D600; I guess it depends on your expectations of the word "fits". However, it was an easy install and the protector can be removed with the help of a hair dryer... according to Giotto's instructions.
I'm glad that I did the install of the protector and am satisfied just enough with it. The edge of the RRS L-Plate can be seen just below the word Nikon.

If Giottos had cut the black border surrounding the LCD proctor by half, it would have been a much better fit. I'm not sure why the black border is necessary, except perhaps to hide the adhesive or to highlight the name Giottos, probably the latter.
After living with it for a few days, it is not that big of a deal for me.
I put the "Vello Glass LCD Screen Protector for Nikon D4, D600 & D800" (available from B & H) on my D600. I was able to put in on the rear LCD monitor with no problems; the black border did not cover-up any of the screen. However, the small LCD protector it came with did not quite fit the top LCD screen on the D600; it was just a tiny bit too large to make it stick on the LCD.
This LCD protector allowed me to easily put on the Really Right Stuff L-plate without any problem.
I've only recently put this on the D600 so I don't know about how it will work in the long term.
Hello Alan... thanks for your response and the information on Vello protector with the RRS L-Plate.
As to my situation, the RRS L-Plate has arrived and is mounted to the D600. I'm still waiting for the Giotto's piece to this puzzle, and it should arrive this coming Tuesday. I am sensing a happy ending.

My Giotto's protector arrived today but I haven't installed as of yet. Although its package does stipulate that the SP8306 does fit "...Nikon D4, D600, D800, et al"... when comparing my D600 LCD to the Giotto's screen's pull-out overlay (packaging guide) it doesn't "exactly" fit as Matt & Dave have previously mentioned.
From my measurements, the viewable area requirements of the 600's LCD are for Playback 63X48 mm and for Menus 63X46 mm while the viewable area of the Giotto's is 61X46 mm. So as it is "date night" (the wife is waiting), I'll worry about it tomorrow.
