Nikon D 600

I'm thinking about upgrading to the Nikon D600. Anyone out there with any feedback. I took a look at the D800, but just can't justify the cost or the amount of pixels I'd be clogging up my storage with.

Before upgrading to D600, I advise you to have a look on the dust problem that the D600 generate itself after an among of shoots. Its seems that Nikon did not fixed it yet.
Inspirations and opportunities ...

I asked myself the same question and really didn't find any reason to move from my D700 to the D600. Double the D700's resolution in FX is not a valid reason IMHO.

For equal mpxs I would prefer a DX camera that could offer me 1.5 moltiplication (for macro and nature photos).

I am curious as to your reasons for upgrading to the D600 from the D700 (Your profile indicated your are currently shooting a D700, I believe)? What are you looking to improve upon?
Currently my primary camera is a Fuji XT-1.

Mostly dynamic range and image detail quality. I do a lot of golf course photography that ends up enlarged and displayed in the clubhouses. Of course the money shots are early am and late pm and I' not a huge fan of HDR.

Ahhhh-makes sense. I "invested" in the D800 last year and am totally in love. I really don't know what to do with so many pixels, but the way it handles noise, dynamic range, etc. is incredible. I haven't heard much on the D600, except some have said it handles noise more like a D7000. So you might want to take a memory card into a camera shop and try out both, to compare the differences.

Hunts photo tells me the processor on the 600 is the same as the 800 and the low light ability is equal. I hope to try a friends 800 before I make the decision. Thanks everyone for the input
