I bought an FM2 when it was the only SLR with a 1/200 flash sync speed. (As soon as it was announced the L.A. Times ordered 40 FM2 cameras for it staff photographers; the PJs appreciated the ability to use fill-flash that did not produce ghost images. In those days a lot of pro shooters used SLRs that were aimed at amateur photographers because they were relatively small and inexpensive as well as having some features that were not available on the venerable F series cameras.)

The difference between a 1/200 and 1/250 flash sync is minimal; the slightly slower sync speed is fine for eliminating fill-flash ghosting. I use fill-flash quite a bit and I've owned Nikons with both sync speeds; the D600 sync speed should not dissuade anyone from purchasing the camera if it otherwise meets their requirements.
