Hell it's a stop better than my D700

Looks to be about equal (when scaled to the same size) as the D800.

Yeah, according to DXO Mark, it is the second best sensor ever tested for low light. Right behind the D3s (a $5000.00 camera) and just ahead of the D800E.

The D600 is Going to Yellowstone

Well, I am all packed up, two photo backpacks with my D600 and a Nex 5n and all the associated lenses/filters/chargers/tripods. I am heading off to Yellowstone in a few hours for a 5 day stay.

I am a new Nikon shooter, so all I have for lenses at the moment is a 50mm F1.8G lens and a Tair 33 300mm F4.5 Preset that has a Kiev 6 to Nikon adapter mounted. Sure wish I already had a decent Nikkor telephoto.

It is going to be fun to put the D600 through the paces. I'm sure it won't let me down.

All my Pentax gear is staying behind.

I'll update this thread with some photos when I get back!

I really like the 1.8g lens.
Using it on a d800 and it is up to the task.
Will Yellowstone be fall colors???

Grand Tetons and the D600

Howdy everyone. I spent the last four days visiting Yellowstone National Park. I passed through the Grand Teton National Park on my way there (stayed in Jackson over night). Here are a few photos taken with my new D600 and 50mm F1.8 G lens. It was very smoky most of the day, but I got a decent shot earlier in the morning.

These were converted using the Nikon software. I'm not familiar with it and it is very limiting compared to Adobe's Camera Raw, so I didn't do hardly any post processing as I usually would. I can't wait for ACR to update for the D600, these images would be much better.

As a side note, I LOVE this D600! Images at 100% are outstanding in detail and sharpness, even at 200% there is really no noise and very little loss of detail.

I'm really going to like using this camera.

Those are some great shots. Thanks for posting them. Still in the market for a new camera, and now I've got something else to consider. Hmmm...

Well, here's a few more to help you consider

D600 50mm F1.8 G lens

(BTW, you should see the clarity and detail at 100% )

Ah, man. I had just about decided on an Olympus OM-D (I already have some micro-four thirds stuff).

Back to the drawing board.

Ken Rockwells got an article on his website stating the 600, 800, and D4, are essentially the same camera and given nobody needs the megapixels of the 800 the 600 is the no brainer choice. best DSLR from Nikon all things considered. according to KR..

for most action you usually are trying to center the subject anyway? my D700 has a small hiccup working with the SB 900 and with the Best Buy Black Tie warranty due to the 700 is "discontinued" (even though Nikon USA has them back on their website) if I send it in for service, they may "replace" the camera (give me full refund in store credit) as thats what they did with my D40 and D300 which allowed me to upgrade. I really like the D700 but should they want to replace it I'm not sure which way to go. All else aside the D3S looks like the smart move but they don't carry it. I don't want an 800 and even though I thought I wanted a D4 I now think...I don't.

I'd like to have two 700's is what I'd like to have. MX season is over so it's time to send the 700 in for service but I'm afraid they'll deem it "not repairable" and I'll be forced into a 600 or an 800.

so far the 600 makes more sense? maybe get 2 of those....

You, of all people, would be the last person I would expect to listen to Ken Rockwell...

I know a lot of people don't care for him and I have no opinion either way. I don't donate..

I'm just interested in information and it's a source. he does raise some interesting points in that little write up by him comparing the 3 though.

I don't always agree with Ken Rockwell. He more or less admits to being full of crap.
I have a D600 with MB-D14, and I do share his enthusiasm for the camera. The D600
works great with the AI, AIS, and AI converted lenses I typically use. I have a 300 F4 AF
from 1988, but I haven't used it yet, so I have no opinion on the Auto Focus capabilities
of the camera. Kai Wong, on DigitalRev, reviewed the D600 and thought it had trouble
focusing on fighters in a dimly lit gym. CRP

Kai who?

The D600 as an entry level camera is very, very good. Sony made the sensor and its as good as it gets. Sure its does not have some of the niceties of the pro bodies but for entry level its an excellent contender. Forget Ken and Kai and their wheel barrows. Its an entry level body and a bloody good one.

It does lack some sealing but everything else screams buy me.
