If you want to operate at high ISO, the Df has the better sensor.  The Df also has an AF ON button.  If you were to see an X-Ray view of the DF, you'll see that it has more magnesium than the D600/D610.  At lower ISOs, the Df outperformed the D4.  Both the Df and D4 have Nikon designed sensors.  I even have non-AIS lenses that I can use with the Df.  I used to have a D600 (no spot issues) but I sold it for a Df.  I could tell right away that the IQ on the Df looked better than the D600.  Of course the D600 has more MPx than the Df but if I want more details, I'll go to my D800.

This is a snap I took at Disneyland.  My Minolta Flashmeter VI measured the scene at EV2.  The Df auto-focus worked quickly and the image didn't have the splotchy grain that the D600 had.
