The D600 is fine for sports too

I'd say unless you're shooting sports, the D600 will AF just fine. I've had a couple of misses, but they were mostly my fault. I've had misses with the D700, too, so I know when it's my fault.

When the subject isn't moving, I get close to a 100% hit rate with my D600. Pretty much every frame comes out tack sharp, even with my 50/1.4 wide open.

For sports, predictive autofocus performance is very good. Of course, if you're in a dark room, trying to track a black subject against a black background, it's going to have some trouble. But for the vast majority of situations, I find it pretty hard to complain about the D600's tracking performance.
