The D600 looks darn good...

The D600 offers up a heck of a good value at the price point of the D300s.  If the D600 offered more speed it would totally beat out the D300s. As it is I would buy a D600 in a heartbeat if I wanted a new DSLR.  FF, 5.5fps, DX option for more reach (think birding), 100% view finder, HD movies, 900 shot battery, ISO 50-25,600, +++, whats not to like?

I honestly see no reason for Nikon to produce a $2000 DX body. All FF bodies can shoot in DX mode.  Sensors used to be very expensive as was memory.  That has changed.  Why bother with a DX sensor in a full sized DSLR.

The only reason for smaller sensors is smaller bodies.  Look for a mini-DSLR or hybrid to compete with the Sony NEX bodies and think beyond the conventional.  I want to see Nikon produce a NEX size body with the APS sized sensor, mirrorless, with PDAF like a DSLR!  That would be exciting!
