All good words, basically.

"All in all, the D600 seems very well rounded. Indeed, I believe it will start the FX revolution-for-the-mainstream pretty much the same way the D70 started the DX DSLR revolution-for-the-mainstream oh so many moons ago (106 moons, I believe; dang it, I've got to stop taking those pills that make me so anal ; )."

And I like this part ;).

"Well, first, it's probably the camera that most of the D800 purchasers should have bought. The casual user, and even quite a few of the serious enthusiasts, don't need 36mp, especially when they start putting the 28-300mm on the front. The 24-85mm VR and 28-300mm VR are much better matches to the D600. Indeed, the f/4 zooms also look pretty good for this camera (where's the 70-200mm f/4, Nikon?). "

Good shooting and good luck
(after Ed Murrow)

This camera is worth $1500, not $2100. Seriously... It is not even a true FX D7000. You're trading a storage slot, slight FPS, and slower shutter speed for arguably better build quality, and if the sensor is the same D3x, then it is not even a true FX D7000, as its efficiency is not as good.
