What camera is best for street photography?

Caveat, I use an NEX-5N right now and with the Zeiss 24 or my Voigtlander Nokton 35/1.4 I am really happy out and about most of the time. I do more than street photography and my 5N is limited in some of what I want to do and the external controls are lacking so that's a bit of a pain. But lately, I am feeling the lure of full frame so I figured I'd ask around. The D600 and the 35/1.4 is appealing to me. However, when I read the Nikon forum it seems like there is an oversampling of landscape shooters. I have no desire for landscape shooting so maybe the D600 isn't a good street camera???

What camera - lens combo do you use for street photography and is it the perfect combo for you or what would you prefer ideally? I probably have no chance to get a Leica and lenses, so I'd prefer not to add Leicas to this discussion; though, you're free to note how much you love your Leica if that's what you shoot.

Thanks.
