Note, even the D600 in DX mode yields 18mp effectively, so you will still have an improvement in performance over the D90, even in DX mode.

The D600 in DX mode yields a 10 MP IMAGE, not eighteen. More like a D200. It is still very useful feature. OP: Until you decide what FX lenses to purchase (my recommendation would be a 24-85, or a 24-120, a 28 1.8, and a 85 1.8), you can get to know your new camera using the DX lenses.
