Not sure what rain forest you "may" go to BUT most rain forests I've been to are dark and wet.  Weather sealing, high ISO, and fast lens is what you should be considering.

it still performs stellar on my D800E and previously on my D800.

Note that 24-120mm was being heavily rebated earlier. So was D600 back in Nov/Dec and who knows when again. Its a matter of timing and luck. As others have said D600 is more than 6D in every way.

Buying a body based on a single lens is not the brightest thing to do either either, especially for a dark rainy forest.

100%

in sand
