On the D800 you can have either: you can change the custom settings to grey out the area outside the border instead of just the lines. Can still see the larger area, but the grey works better for me than the lines (I'm not using it in DX crop mode, but have been playing around with 4X5 crop mode - tired of not having enough image when cropping to 8X10 for printing! ). Will the D600 provide this option?

Yes, the D600 allows you to either gray out the area outside the DX crop, or leave it clear and just use the black outline, which sports photographers prefer. It works exactly like the D800. Just set Custom Setting a4 (AF Point illumination) to Off.
If you want to fill your view with the cropped image, use Live View. The D600 fills the LCD with the DX crop (no "grayed out" area), also exactly like the D800.
