With a grain of salt... as my primary body is a D3S and I also have a D700...
I voted VERY GOOD.
Image quality has clearly passed my expectations for this camera. I love the "differences" it has with the D700... in terms of resolution, low-light ability, and straight out-of-camera IQ all around. It's exceptional. 24MP for ME can be a LITTLE heavy, and I sure wouldn't thank you for 36... however there's no arguing the fact it cranks out stellar IQ. I think for my uses 16-18 might be the sweet spot, but I see resolution only being a climbing number at this point so I'll be fighting an uphill battle. Hopefully computers and memory keep pace. The camera does a lot of things very well... like the autofocus system is very capable, there's some great tweaks to previous bodies and new features, like the built-in HDR mode. I also like the fact it's very light and fairly small to see perfect use as a second body to carry.
The reason I didn't vote excellent is that it also loses out against the D3S type bodies (and yes, I understand that it SHOULD have some sacrifices). But the trouble is those sacrifices - such as the lack of an af-on button, the slightly more cramped and moved controls (still don't like the playback +/- placement), and the SD cards which I find too spindly and unassuring in use - make me hold back giving it the perfect score, as much as I likely should because it's nitpicking on my part. The truth is when I use it as a second body against the D3S, it just becomes a little more noticeable where the D3S is beefed up.
Thing is, if you know what you're in for when you buy it, the camera delivers in every way, and has been a very pleasant surprise to me. As I've said before recently, as much as I love my D700, the D600 is a more enjoyable camera to use now, and does some things the D700 plain can't match.
