Regarding the aliasing/moire on D600 and D800, here's one photographer's in-depth research about how the video of Nikon D800 is processed: http://falklumo.blogspot.se/2012/04/lumolabs-nikon-d800-video-function.html

His findings seem very plausible to me, and considering Nikon D800 being a 36 Mpixel sensor that most likely samples each 3rd line, I'd assume that the 24 Mpixel D600 samples every 2nd line on the sensor. Maybe the Expeed 3 processor could be fast enough to process every line on a 24 Mpixel sensor, but I don't see it as likely.

Considering that the dynamic range of the D600 is almost on par with the D800, I think the D600 should be wonderful. I'm a happy D800 owner and the dynamic range of that camera surprises me again and again :)

Someone asked about lenses. All of the old nikon AF-series, AF-D, AI-S and AI lenses have aperture rings, and if I've understood it correctly, these will make you able to change the aperture while in Live View.

All the newest nikon lenses marked with G lack a manual aperture ring, so these are lenses you might want to avoid for the D600 then.

Personally I've used the 50mm f/1.8 AF-D a lot, and it's one of my absolute favourites, very sharp. I have the 50mm f/1.4 AF-D as well, but I actually tend to like the 1.8 a bit better.

There's a lot of great 85mm lenses in Nikon's line-up as well. There's several nice 105mm lenses from Nikon as well

For wide shots, the 17-35 mm f/2.8 zoom is quite an expensive one, but has manual aperture ring as well. The 24mm f/1.4 is awesome, but very expensive as well. For a budget wide prime I'd probably go for AF-D 24mm f/2.8 or the old AI/AI-S 28mm f/2.8, or maybe a Samyang 24mm f/1.4 prime.

With Nikon, there is a lot of nice old lenses to be had among AF-D, AF, AI-S and AI series (different versions listed from newest tech to oldest here). Several AI-S, AF and AF-D lenses can still be had brand new from Nikon, others you can find second hand.

Hope this might help.

Since there's a lot of gearheads here, I guess I could add a listing of the lenses I currently have for my D800:

50mm: Nikon E Series 50mm f/1.8 (manual), Nikon 50mm f/1.8 AF-S D, Nikon 50mm f/1.4 AF-D
85mm: Nikon AI-S 85 mm f/2 (manual)
105mm: Nikon AI-S 105mm f/2.5 (manual)
200mm: Nikon AI 200mm f/4 (manual)
400mm: Tokina 400mm f/5.6 (manual)

What does clean HDMI output mean? I think Atomos as well as Nikon are promoting something here that isn't actually usable .

The whole problem with the Canon DSLRs was that they could resolve only about half the lines, of the GH2, and therefore,they were not packing in enough details. I don't believe the Nikons will be any better, whether they say 4-2-0 or 4-2-2 chroma sub-sampling. Whether you get the Ninja or any other HDMI recorder, I don't believe it will make much of a difference.
Not to mention all the aliasing and moire.
