I moved from a d300 to a d600. The AF performance is slightly better in my opinion with the D600. The D300 usually would hunt if shooting into near darkness, but the D600 is better at locking on. The main caveat? You absolutely cannot shoot in AF-A. AF-A is atrocious--causing the lens to hunt like crazy.

Instead, I shoot in AF-C with priority to focus and not shutter. This way, my keeper rate is pretty high. Overall, I'd say after shooting several hundred shots in low light conditions, the D600 is a winner.

That is good to know. I mainly use AF-C with D300 anyway.
