What is F-Mount and Bayonet Mount relating to Lenses and camera? I am afraid that the CPU contacts on the lenses and the mounting these lenses on to new Nikon DSLR would be difficult or that they are incompatible.
The f-mount and bayonet mount refer to type of mechanical hardware used to connect the lens to the camera body. But, the answer to your compatibility question is rather detailed and lengthy as it relates to the specific camera and lens type.

Rather than give you some mis-information, here is a link to a pretty detailed explanation of the lenses that have been made by Nikon and their compatibility with specific camera bodies.

Between D600 and D800, apart from the cost, is the shutter speed the only difference?

Also, since both these cameras are FX format, why are the image sizes different (32MP vs 24MP)?

Thank you.

Well, one of the differences is that the D800 has a higher resolution image sensor than the D600. (32MP vs. 24MP).

Also, the D800 can use (1) CF card as well as (1) SD card while the D600 can use (2) SD cards, the D800 can record images at a rate of 4 fps while the D600 can go as fast as 5.5 fps, the D800 has more flexible bracketing options, and the D800 has more AF points. Plus, the D800 is bigger and heavier.
