A crop sensor camera will provide a 1.5x (1.6x for Canon) equivalent zoom. i.e. a 300mm lens used on a DX body will give the equivalent of 450mm. Also doing the reverse (using a DX lens on a full frame) may result to vignetting. The D600 AFAIK has a switch to enable compatibility with DX lenses.

The image circle at the focal plane projected by a FX lens is larger than the DX sensor, it works but, the field of view would be similar to that of a longer lens (focal length x 1.5) without the magnification. Similar to using an 8x10 lens on a 5x7 field camera, though the crop factor would not be nearly as extreme.
