What's the D600 advantage of the 39 AF points centered?

I'm spoiled by Micro Four Thirds as well

(As info, I'm coming from Nikon DX to M43 to FX.)

I'm spoiled by M43's AF -- the GH2 with native m43 CDAF lenses made for incredibly fast AF with focus points anywhere. And having a touch screen that allows you to focus and shoot with one touch is amazingly convenient.

Using the D600's auto-focus, I feel like I'm back in the stone age. I find myself using Live View quite often to get focus in the outer areas; it works well but focusing isn't nearly as fast as current M43 offerings.

As a landscaper, this doesn't bother me, but as CDAF gets better and better, PDAF and mirrors are seeming more and more archaic. I'd give anything for a mirrorless full-frame solution in the future.
