D600 vs D300s

I've been shooting a D300s for a while now. I very much like the handling and AF and needed the reach of a crop body to shoot HS field sports. This is my last year of regular sports shooting and I had been considering moving to used D700 but now I'm seriously considering the D600 instead.

My 24-70 and 70-200 are a better fit for me on Fx (wider/shorter). I'm not a pro and, the new camera will likely take less abuse that my current.

The reasons I want to go to Fx are
A) larger brighter viewfinder
B) Less noise (much less), especially ISO 800+
C) Greater dynamic range, especially ISO 800+

I'm not considering a D7k or the rumored D400. I want a larger viewfinder. I'm also not considering the D800. It's a great camera but I don't want to spend $3k and I don't want 36MP files.

So I'm looking for some comparison images between D300s and D600 that illustrate the ISO noise and dynamic range. I think the D600 is hugely better but I haven't seen any direct comparisons. Anyone seen these yet?
