You seem to have made up your mind in advance. 24 versus 36mp not relevant???

I think its more than relevant - it is the point.

I have D800E. It was perfect from day one. I considered getting a D600 recently as well. I couldn't get past the dust/oil issue and how badly handled it was. I didn't get one. As far as I can tell because Nikon won't reveal it, they are still making D600's with oil/dust problems right now.

So I had zero confidence and that was enough to consider other cameras. A shame as I think the D600 is potentially a wonderful camera.

I don't think photos of what you want to take with oil/dust spots on it would be considered superb quality. Quite the opposite.

Also for travel I would consider portability to be a big issue. I have a Fuji XE1 for that and I tend to use it more than my D800E because of it plus it tends to have better ooc jpegs than either D800E or D600 in other than daylight light.
