It's just "peeking" from the bag so your wife doesn't notice it, right? My biggest problem would be where to hide the D200 body? She wouldn't know the difference if I pulled out a D7000 or a D800! LOL!

Oh, and congratulations on your purchase....keep us posted.

Mavette is remarkably supportive of my toy shopping

And the camera is great so far - have only spent a little time playing but it seems super fast. The first model is Chloe, our dog!

Are you saying that the D600 is more suited to cat people, and the D800 is more suited to dog people?

I've been saving my pennies for the D600 as well, since the price was rumored around $1,500-1,700. Like many others, I'm disappointed that the price came in at $2,099. Also disappointed that Canons equivalent has built in GPS and Wi-Fi for the same price.

For now I'm going to hold off until it's been on the market for a few months to see some long term reviews/reliability issues.

The Nikon D600 has a metal top plate, so the antennas for GPS and WiFi have to be on the outside of the camera.
The Canon 6D will have a plastic top plate, so these features can be built into the body. GPS being optional and
external would not stop me from buying a Nikon D600. A plastic top plate would not stop me from buying a Canon
6D. I feel both cameras offer good value at their price point. I went with Nikon in 1984, and own nine F-mount lenses,
so the D600 would be my personal choice.

Would WIFI on a camera enable it to send pics directly to your computer, from wherever?

Nikon's WU-1b mobile adaptor supports Android devices OS2.3 through iOS5.1.1.
Photo files can be sent to an Android phone or tablet computer. The files sent to the
Android phone could then be sent wherever. The device can also be used to fire the
camera's shutter remotely.

Canon thought so too with the 6D Full Frame. GPS, WiFi built in, little slower fps than the Nikon but for those who already have a collection of Canon lenses its a great entry into the FX realm. AF is only 11 point compared to the Nikon 39 point.

Until I can afford the Nikon D800, my wife will get the Canon 6D it will more than meet her needs she prefers Canon its better to get her camera 1st.

Well, I'll have my D600 in my hands in a couple of hours, just waiting for the brown truck to arrive.

I'll be sure to post some sample images here once I get it.

Here's just a quick high ISO shot of my dog in a very dimly lit room. I wanted to see how high the usable ISO is so I shot this at 6400 ISO using a 50mm F1.8 G lens at F2.5

This is just a jpeg with the high ISO NR off. I'm sure that the low noise in the raw file will be even better!

That's amazing compared to my ancient D90. Right now I use it to take wedding photos, can't wait to upgrade to the D600 and make my life a whole lot easier!
