D600 focusing is less than stellar vs. D800 in low contrast situations such as existing light on faces. It either haunts or miss focuses. Have no idea about D700.

My first question to you is do you actually own one or did you read this somewhere?  My keeper rate has gone up as well... I still struggle a little bit with DOF on my 50mm but am learning.  I'll blame this one one on operator error and not taking my time with the set up before I shoot....  Even though there are fewer focal points to the D600 it isn't a poor focusing camera by any stretch of the imagination.

Load your gun before you shoot dude...
