24 vs 36 megapixels - i'm thinking not really relevant as 24 is more than enough and on the rare occasion you may want to print a huge canvas you can simply buy something like genuine fractals and upsize.

Actual difference is a lot less than 50%. according to DXO pmp, actual resolution improvement from D3X to D800 is most cases is merely 1 mp.

39 vs 51 AF points - from what i gather this is an issue if you shoot in very low indoor light, but if you believe what is circulating on the internet the new firmware has improved this.

D600's Af's working range goes down to -1EV and D800's -2, it is a hardware spec, cannot be changed by firmware

1/4000th max shutter speed - The D700 has 1/8000 with base ISO of 200 and no one complained about that, so i can't see the D600 having 1/4000 with ISO 100 base being a problem as it's effectively the same thing.

Same here, I have only once needed 1/8000 that is when shooting solar eclipse.

1/200 flash sync - I doubt the average photographer who fits within the above category would ever be caused a problem by the 1/50 reduction.

While I do wish D600 had 1/250s, I do not think it is a deal break, and I cannot imagine it would be a deal break for anyone.
