No AF micro adjust. Max flash sync 1/200s. Max shutter speed 1/4000s.
For the price, I would get the D700 instead. Better everything (for me) except (arguably) the sensor.

Where did you get the "No AF Micro Adjust"? 

dpreview.com stated that MAFA was a missing feature

I use canon SLR's Film and Digital for more than 10 years.... BUT in the last one an half years Nikon is wiping the floor with Canon in terms of semipro and pro cameras... In terms of resolution, IQ, features, diversity AND MOST IMPORTANT PRICE. I know Canon L series is over Nikon top lens in terms of quality and diversity.

After 10 years  of using Canon gear and  last 2 years for professional photography i really considering switching to Nikon if Canon will not respond ( and i don't mean especially to Nikon D600 ) to Nikon. By this i mean by introducing a affordable entry lvl FF, a significant drop in price regarding 5D3 and an entry lvl sports/wildlife crop sensor ( called 7DMk2) with improved IQ.

Regarding the new Nikon D600..... two words: WELL DONE Nikon , no comment.

DPREVIEW got it wrong.

Two years of making your living with cameras, Canon cameras, and you will sell them all, reinvest in another type of equipment because they wont respond in the ways you stated? 

After two years, I certainly hope any investment you have in Canon equipment has long since paid for itself many times over... I'm trying to rationale the business decision on this....

... +1 for the af assist light on the d600 Canon cut from the 5d3 so you need a $500+ 600rt flash to do that. All in all absolutely impressive I regret to say as a Canon shooter, but since Magic Lantern or other 3rd party firmware doesn't run on Nikon I still wouldn't want to switch.

Like anyone with a 5D or 1D X or 1Ds or whatever full-frame body you shoot with will want to switch to Nikon, because they bring out a new entry level full-frame body. This is only significant for Nikon shooters wanting to switch to a cheaper full-frame body. If you have Canon lenses, there is no point in changing systems just for that. If you are invested in the likes of Nikon D800 or D3/D4, there is also not a big impact by a new entry-level camera. Perhaps you might consider it as a backup camera, but so what?

I doubt its just for nikon shooters, its a really well round package with a few really sweet adds(dual sd, spotlinked meter, flash, F8 etc) that its bound to interest everyone in the market for FF. Obviously not the guy with 5k+ on canon lenses but definitely Aps-c and 1st and/or 2nd gen FF users who cant afford or dont want to spend 3k+ on a new camera

An interesting unintended side-effect of bundling even mid-range DSLRs with crappy kit lenses (in the interest of keeping price down) is that there's no system "lock-in" for the folks that bought the bundles.  A 60D user with only the 18-55 lens is a lot more likely to just sell the whole thing & move to another brand than someone with a Rebel that loves her lens(es) & wants a better camera, even if she only owns one optic...

I think we can see how Canon will respond - with a very forgetful camera.

D600 ISO performance test against D700, pretty good to me.
