    Since very few of us have had the chance to test the D600, it’s difficult to tell how good it is only by reading the specs. and the biased hands-on preview by websites and people who have a strong interest in making us buy Nikon products.

    The only thing we can do is to check at the first samples released to try to make our own opinion.

    The only samples given on well known review sites are the one from Nikon, therefore, very good ones as they want us to buy the camera.

    However, some other samples (not coming from Nikon) have been posted on different websites and should let everybody appreciate at its right value the quality of the D600:

    – Imaging Resource (tests in NEF format + gallery in Jpg)
    – Fotopolis
    – More to come…

    As you will see, some pictures are far from the quality of the ones given by Nikon Corp. and it is not surprising.

    As for the price: 2100 to 2400$ for a minor version of the D800, I let everybody appreciate the irony of an announced “affordable or entry level FF camera”… If you add the 24-85 kit lens, it will cost you the “affordable” price of 2500 to 2700$ (almost the same price as a D800 strangely).

    Only Sony with the A99 has decided to be more expensive. Canon with the 5D models is not and the future 6D price will be aligned on the D600 (2100$ provided that it stays at this price in few month).

    My advice to all sensible photographers would be to wait before buying or delay it until the prices become reasonable.

    Don’t forget, its’ not the gear that makes a good photographer, but the guy behind the camera.
