No love for the D600?

Recommended Posts

I still want a D800 almost as much as I want a foursome. But seeing as how the D600 just got the second highest dx0 mark after the D800 and at $2000 is not bad at all!

It's a pretty good deal, I'm tempted to go full-frame but I'm having a bit of trouble justifying it.

Argote, Yeah I know what you mean :( How are you considering becoming Nikon having all that sony gear? Though if you could sell them easily then why not?

In my case I would go A99 which is supposed to be based around the same Sony sensor as the D600 with some improvements. Then again, two of my four lenses are APS-C only, including my Carl-Zeiss zoom, so I'd have to update those anyway.

My initial thoughts were that the D600 was way overpriced. The more I look into it, the more I see it's a decent value.

I wish it had a little higher FPS... 5.5's pretty low. Also it tops out at 1/4000. I can't count how many times I wish my D90 went to 1/8000!

D800 is even slower FPS but has some extra features and body strength that seem to make it worth the extra $900.

The decision to make a purchase for me is quite easy; I've no free time and I don't shoot anything any more. No need to buy anything :p

I still think the D800 much better than the D600.

Exactly on that same boat... :(

On the shutter deal I think i've only once or twice wished to have 1/8000, but I guess to each is own.

I still think the D800 much better than the D600.

That's a no-brainer... Though buying $3,000 worth of camera equipment when I don't make a living out of it, is pretty hard to justify :p

I saw some comments on the a99 on dpreview, that price will be $2800 body only? That's d800 territory :p

I thought it was 2800$ and the D600 is a bit over 2000$ Sure hard to justify. I do make a bit money on my shots. I am a 5dmIII guy but i keep giving the eye to the D800. Its really nice. LOL. The D600 is the same as the 6D to me. Just does not do it for me.

Well, the A99 is a higher end camera than the D600...

what features does the D800 have over D600? It's a got a few extra pixels and 1 stop faster shutter. Is D600 missing anything like a motor drive input(/output)?

Larger, more robust and less plasticky

More (cross type) focus points

More crop modes

Compact Flash support

Viewfinder curtain!

Compatible with existing viewfinder accessories (DK-17M/DK-19 combo is just awesome)

Better exposure metering sensor (91000-pixel vs 2016-pixel)

1/250 flash sync speed (vs 1/200)

AF-ON and metering controls on the back!

Overall layout of the controls
