the D600 does have an LCD light. You just flip the on/off switch the other way. I've also read the oil/dust issue is way overblown. I've not seen any issues so far.
That being said, I wouldn't have minded a 6D.. The -3EV center dot focus point is nice....but 1 single cross type point is just stupid. Also, it has pretty much the exact same size viewfinder as a Rebel??! (Correct me if I'm wrong. It has 96% coverage.. Rebels have 95% coverage). Even the 7D has 100% coverage and large viewfinder............... The wifi remote application is really cool, but it's hard to argue in most points the D600 is a 6D killer. But for what it's worth, I was gonna go with the 6D anyway--almost wish I had for the lens selection and prices
The 97% refers to how much of the captured image is displayed in the viewfinder. It does not have anything to do with the perceived size of the image in the viewfinder. I can not tell any difference between the 6D, 5D Mkiii or the Nik 600D as far as viewfinder useability goes. Have never used a Rebel so can not comment on it.
I still frequent the Nikon Cafe and some people are having dust/oil issues. Mine did not in the short time owned, but the sensor did start developing hot/stuck pixels which showed up readily on a dark background. Those can be mapped out but on mine new ones appeared soon after. Just a bad one I guess.
They are both good cameras and as others have said, the choice probably has more to do with what system you already have an investment in. Personally, I think they are both good. I do really like the feel of the 6D in the hand a lot better than the 600D, but that is just my perception.
If there is a bad rap on the 6D, for me it is the stupid 8 way controller within a scroll wheel. Don't know why they did not incorporate the separate joystick the 5D has.
Enjoy your Nik...like I said...both good systems.
