Thom Hogan is sayingsame, comparing it to the D70, which, for Nikonians, was big turning point, first enthusiast's camera under 1,000usd. It's selling very fast at Amazon, among top 10 all electronic stuff, amid Kindles and smartphones.

My bet is Canon will speed up the development of a similar body.

But, if the D600 sensor lives up to its Sony heritage, without the megapixel overweight and manufacturing/design defects of the D800 (AF, green tint, etc.), I think it will be a very attractive camera in its own right. At $1400 less than the 5d3, it will appeal to many categories of shooters. If you can shoot a wedding with a 5d2, you can shoot a wedding with a D600.

Price-wise, it competes with xD Canon cameras. Features-wise, it competes with the 5d3.

It looks to be a fine and appealing camera at a price and with a sensor that will profoundly challenge Canon.

I think it may be a market-changing camera.
