D600 AF module and coverage area
Sep 13, 2012

1) Even though D600 uses 39 AF points (same as D7k), due to the bigger sensor size, these 39 AF points are highly centralised within the FX frame area as seen in the attached photo.

I was wondering how and in what respects this would affect user experience when compared to D7k?

2) Even though D7k and D600 uses the same AF module, i.e. Multi-CAM 4800, the former uses "Multi-CAM 4800 DX" and "Multi-CAM 4800 FX". Is there any difference between these two? Or are they just named as "... DX" and ".....FX" just due to the sensor they are used with? If they is any difference, how likely D600's AF would perform better? If there is not, how likely D600 AF may perform better than that of D7000 due to using Expeed 3 processor instead of Expeed 2?
