Yeah, watching Kai shoot with the D600 and watching the AF not work so well really made me raise an eyebrow if you're getting "Better AF" on the D600...
I've tried out the D600's AF in person and it doesn't seem to be that bad. I own a D700 with the 51 pt AF system and I've extensively used a friend's 5DM3 with the 61 pt system, and the D600 doesn't seem that much worse. The only complaint I have is that the AF points are more clustered in the center compared to the D700/5D3.
Having owned a number of Canon cameras ranging from Rebels to 40D/5D, I prefer the D600's AF system. The non-cross points in the periphery are pretty good, at least in my short experience with the D600. An annoyance on many Canons is that the AF points are permanently etched into the viewfinder, whereas on Nikons they only show up when needed and don't distract from the viewfinder view.
