Annoying but nothing can be done about it

The AF sensors just cannot be too close to the edges of the image circle. It's an optical limitation.

Granted there is also an economy of parts on the D600 which results in a little less coverage than on a D800. But even the D800 layout would probably still not fit your requirements.

Solutions: frame differently (i.e. same compositino but wider view, planning for DX crop later in post), use LV, buy a DX camera, etc.
