You already have a d600? What's wrong with that? I process to black and white all the time.

Nothing wrong with the d600. I am aware of the fact that I can process the files into B&W. I have a need for a second camera. So, thought to buy one that is well suited for B&W. My question here is to learn about whether or not B&W is less demanding that color in term of resolution, dynamic range, etc...

My b&w will be 70% portraits of people I know and those I dont (street photography) and rest architectural or landscapes.


Your D600 is fine.  It has outstanding dynamic range.  24MP is plenty.  There is no need to buy another camera for B&W.  If you want to buy a second camera go ahead.  But I don't think there is anything about B&W that would point you towards one body over another.
