Revisiting the Nikon D600 DxoMark test results (with long list of comparisons)

DXoMark, in their infinite wisdom, decided to publish three new test results (D600, K30, GF5) in the middle of the Photokina 2012 announcement madness. Now that the announcement madness is over, let us take a closer look at their test results of the Nikon D600. Here are the test results (click on Measurements to see the Flash widget with the detailed results). They have also published an analysis of their findings.

The usual DXoMark caveats apply when evaluating the test results... Potentially interesting comparisons with cameras that were not measured by Dxomark (as of the time of writing of this blog-post) are marked with (future comparison) in the long list of comparison lists below:
