Agree, and I shoot 5D3, but have used the D600 (and this is my take on it, since its very close to the 610)

Canon 6D and 5D3 (better body on the 5D3 for sure. 6D a little less then the 600)

AF on the 5D3 kills D600 and the center point on the 6D kills D600 and better then 5D3.

DR on the D600 beats out both Canon's for sure.. Color of people's skin is better on canon. Nikon, better for landscapes for sure..

D600 Flash system better.

Canon 600EXRT better with TTL wireless.

Canon 24-70 2.8II is sharper then the Nikon 24-70 2.8.

I would only add that either Canon model kills interpolated LV on D600/610/800/800e. I was willing to change the system and compromise a lot, but the critical reasons why I eventually returned D800 and went with 5D3 were skin tones and interpolated LV useless for landscapes with Zeiss. Fortunately A7r now fixes this problem plus allows mounting a wider range of optics.
