DPR has added D600 studio image to their database for us to compare different cameras. When I looked the RAW up to ISO3200, I don't really see meaningful difference between D600, 5D3, D800 and A900. These new generation sensors might be one stop better than A900 in therms of high ISO. Did I miss anything? http://www.dpreview.com/previews/nikon-d600/7

I think you might be a bit too optimistic with regards to improvements in high ISO quality. I'd agree that the D600 has about one stop advantage on the A900 (which unfairly had the reputation of being a noise machine) and the D3X which isn't too shabby. Add to that the (probably) improved DR due to less noise in the shadows and you've got a better product. If the improvements warrant to buy the new model is for each to decide.
