    I think I need to stop thinking about finding a camera as an upgrade for the D700 and just look for a complement.  The 800E would be useful for half of what I shoot, but for urban HDR, not so much (especially handheld).  And, alas, the D600 just seems not worth it, coming from the D700 (maybe worth it coming from somewhere else).  I had been lamenting getting the D3200 as my second body (to replace the aging D40x), but now I see it's a much less expensive second body.  At least until the D4 and the 700 becomes my second.

    +Jeff Austin , is the d600 supposed to have sub-par low noise capabilities?

    +hikaru starr , I'm not sure where, but I think I recall reading that the D800 was expected to have slightly better ISO capabilities.  That being said, some reviews seem to like what they're getting (check out the imaging-resource.com link at the top, and dpreview here for samples: http://www.dpreview.com/news/2012/09/13/Nikon-D600-preview-real-world-samples-image-gallery

    Well… I know a small bit about waffer production and from what I know, I would assume the chips in the A99, D800/E, and D600 are all the same. Waffers have yields in that x% will give the ideal (800E), y% near ideal (800%), n% sub ideal (600, A99), and q% reject. In this case n is always the highest.

    This matches how Intel etc, position and price their chips. 

    Anyway, I would imagine the noise performance isn't too different, likely less that 5% change there.

    +hikaru starr Not anywhere near as good as your D700, but shouldn't be to bad.  I have a D800e and I don't mind raising the ISO a little.  The noise is manageable, however with any camera as you start raising your ISO you start losing some dynamic range.  
    With so many pixels you would want to take advantage of base and low ISO as much as you can and that is where the camera will really shine.  
    I think of my D800e as the controlled lighting camera and the D700 for every other situation.  This lets both cameras do what they were designed for, ultimately leaving you with some pretty awesome images.  
    The best way to think of the D600 is a full frame D7000 a really solid camera designed for the amateurs budget.
