If you have a collection of FX lenses, and you aren't into action shots, then consider the Nikon D800 but you will need a fast computer and plenty of harddisk space, as the Jpeg file are about 20mb, the NEF between 40mb to 50mb and Tiffs are 105mb.
I imagine that these stats will make people think long and hard when choosing between the D600 and the D800.
My laptop is pretty quick but the D800 would push it to its limits I'd suggest.
