A D7000 FX body is coming
Jun 15, 2012

Rumor has it the D600 is coming out, and will essentially have a D7000 body (down to the mode dial) with an FX sensor. AF will be the same (or slightly updated) 39-point AF on the D7000, which may not make many happy, but at least it appears it will have the screw AF mototr mechanism.

Though I have 2 D700 bodies for my photog work, I still like having a D7000 for when I don't want to lug around a lot of gear. With the Sigma 17-50 and 8-16, I find I can shoot just about anything I would want to shoot when I'm not getting paid for it -- and perhaps even do a lot better than that. If this D600 is light enough, I may have to think long and hard about jettisoning the D7000 and picking up the D600 as a true FX backup for my 2 D700 bodies, and not an all-too-bad portrait shooter. I recently added a grip to my D7000, so I'm already training in the "more weight" department.

Some alleged leaked pics of the D600:

Anyone else ready to make the FX jump if this D600 is affordable enough?
