Aperture and shutter speed are both too important to leave to the camera to decide.

Auto ISO is one of the best things to happen to cameras since they went digital. M all the way. I just keep an eye on the ISO to make sure that it is not hitting the buffer at either end, but I can let it range through about 5 stops without worrying too much about affecting quality.

Actually I disagree about leaving shutter speed to the camera. On the D600 (and I think the D800 and D4) if you set autoISO then it can be set to take the focal length into account and you can even adjust this to be faster or slower than normal. So if you aren't shooting action, then A and autoISO let's you set the DoF and let's the camera adjust the others. I almost never used autoISO before the D600 but the new implementation is really nice.
