Sorry, no flames here, but i do have some remarks...

I had the D600, now i have the D800.

My hands are on the large side of average. Holding the D600 was not exactly comfortable. Fingertips pressing into the body without the grip filling my hands, pinky dangling under the grip getting strained by the sharp edge in the plastic cover at the bottom of the camera.

D800 fits my hands perfectly.

Another noticable difference is the autofocus, D600 needs more contrast in the center focuspoint when lightlevels drop. D800 practicly always hits it first try.

I whish i could have kept the 24mpx sensor though, 36mp is more than i guess i'd need.

Although i understand that file quality and size are important factors when choosing a camera, it was the tool itself that turned out to be the deciding factor in my case.
