After reviewing the d600 image samples online vs the d7100  im struggling to see why you would choose a the FX over the DX in this comparison based purely on resolution only, putting lens options and noise aside. Am I the only one  thinking this this?   Im looking to upgrade from my D7000 for landscape, cityscape and wildlife photography and there are huge gains to be had from the samples i have seen from both these 24mp cams but  if a d7100 wasnt enough i wouldnt waste my time on the d600 and just get the d800  and be done with it.
Anyone else thinking the d600 is a waste of money? ( dont mean to offend any d600 owners)  

Notwithstanding the DR and high iso advantage of D600, even if we just look at resolution advantage alone, you need to understand that these test shots were done with the sharpest lens at its sharpest aperture.

When you use less perfect lenses at less than optimal apertures, resolution of D7100 deteriorates faster than than D600. which is what happens with 99.9% of our photos - especially for landscape because you would be shooting a lot of wide angle with small apertures - how many landscape photos do you shoot with 85mm at F57.1 or 50mm at F5.6?
