Dumped my D600 -- Other options?

So I've had my D600 for a year now. The camera was plagued with the now well-known oil spot issue on the sensor (I won't beat that dead horse any more).

In short: I sent the body to Nikon Canada twice for repairs with no improvement. They sent me a brand new body two weeks ago, and after 200 frames, the oil spots reappeared. I requested a full refund from the customer service supervisor, I sent the camera back, and my cheque is in the mail.

Subsequently, I just purchased a new Fuji x100s. This is the first time in 20+ years that I bought a non-Nikon camera. And the D600 was my first step into the DSLR world as I still shoot film.

I realize the Fuji rangefinder won't be able to do things a DSLR can do, and vice versa. Bottom line: I want another Nikon DSLR but I refuse to get the D610 until some time has passed, and it's free from manufacturing problems. I don't want the D800E because it's even bigger than the D600, and not worth the extra $1,000. But I love the full frame format.

With a bag full of Nikon lenses and flashes (but no digital body), can anyone recommend a solid alternative to the D600? Is it possible to get FX-quality images from a DX camera?

Thanks for any advice and insight you might have.
