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)

Ah...well no. why would you leave lower noise, better dynamic range, and better high iso performance aside? It can also be said that if you have enough disposable income, why not just get the D600, and be done with it, because it matches or slightly surpasses the D800 in all but resolution, and build quality.

The D7100 is not such a leap up from the D7000, but the D600 is, at least if you get one without the reported dust issues. Check DXOmark, and compare the two cameras side, by side, include the D800 for fun.
