Re: D600 vs D800

I find the issue of spots on the sensor to be a bogus one.  All you have to do is to clean it off with a wet cleaner until you've taken 3000 or so images.  Then the problem goes away.

The D800 requires good lenses (check the Nikon Technical Guide for the D800).  Most Nikon lenses have a sweet spot at about f/4 to f/8.  Since I shoot at 100 ISO (that is where you have the maximum dynamic range of 14 f/stops).

If you are serious about photography and are graduating from DX to FX, I would get the D800.  You will eventually want to replace your DX lenses so that you can have lenses that give you the same perspective as the DX lenses.  I find that the 16-35mm Nikkor is very good with the D800.  Even the 24-120 works well.  I'll get a 24-70 Nikkor as soon as Nikon comes out with an AF-S version.
