The D800 has slightly different description.

"Auto-area AF: The camera automatically
detects the subject and selects the focus
point; if a face is detected, the camera will
give priority to the portrait subject."

While D800 detects "face", D600 detects "human subject".

I do not know if it is the same.


You're right Martin, however the accompanying illustrations are the same.
