It’s Wednesday the 19th UPS delivers the D600. I have batteries from my D7000 so I do not have wait to use this camera. I take a bunch of pictures. At my iMac I have installed the View NX2 software that came with the D600. I upload the images into my iMac. What happens next? Will my LR4, Capture NX2, DxO, or NIK software allow me to work with these files?
Gary, It's hard to say if Capture NX2 will work. The latest versison is CNX2 2.3.4 and it was posted on 08/31/12 and updated on 09/07/12. Nikon could have included D600 support in this version and not included it in the software update notes - didn't want to tip their hand on the D600 which was announced on 09/13/12. I recommend that you install the latest version. If Nikon was proactive, the support is there. Find it here: http://support.nikonusa.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/17948
BTW, this applies to the latest version of ViewNX2. There latest version for Mac is 2.5.0 and that was also updated on 09/07/12.
Good luck and enjoy your D600. Let us know what yoout think.

Amazing that this could happen so quickly after the announcement of the D600, compared to the situation with the D800 and D4 - is it because the earthquake, tsunami and horrible tragedy in Japan combined with the floods in Thailand, are not playing any role in delaying Nikon, or did they just do it right this time?
-"right" in the sense that they announce the new model, Amazon immediately takes pre-orders, and yours is delivered very shortly thereafter.
The production capacity of the Thailand factories is higher and with additional lines so production can be changed with demand. The normal consumer products are usually available soon after announcement but the higher end bodies and lenses that are made in Japan are built in facilities with less flexibility. The initial demand for the D800 was higher than any pro level camera before and they never intended to build more then 30,000 a month. First day orders were probably 100,000. Production has caught up to sales apparently since D4, D800 and D800e were available off the shelf 2 weeks ago when visiting Poland and here in at local mall shops have them for immediate delivery.
The D600 will likely be an even bigger hit, particularly after the previews of the Canon 6d shows that the D600 has no competition. Stan St Petersburg Russia
Camera Raw will not open the file, of course. The current version of Camera Raw is 7.1. There is a trial release candidate version 7.2 available for download from Adobe, but it does not list the D600 as being supported. I guess that means it could be weeks or a few months for D600 support to be included.
