I presume that you're aware that any DX lens will not work with the D600 except on DX-mode which would defeat the object of going FF. So, I'm assuming that you've been using FX lenses with your D70 and they're either modern or older 35mm film lenses, in which case you must be careful as older film lenses will not fit the D600 (attempts to do so will damage the body).
So much for the glass. IMHO the D600 is a D5100 with a FX sensor shoehorned into it. It's a bit plasticky and not weatherproofed. I'm not even very impressed with the D800 and consider my D700 to be far better build-quality and would recommend you look out for a second hand one of these.
The day you think you've found perfection is the day you stop looking, then someone else will find it and move in front of you.
