Thats just crappy trolling.
The D600 is in fact not better than the 5D3 in most of her specs.

Suggestion 1- Learn how to have a civil conversation. If you had any sense at all, you'd know that I, of all people, am not a troll.

Suggestion 2- Learn how to read. I never said, nor did I imply that the D600 is better than the 5D3 in most of "her" specs. I said it was the equal in many ways of the 5D3. I said that it's superior to the 5D2 in many ways, which if you read the specs, you'd know that it is.

The real difference is not the actuality of the specs but the perception of them. Here the 5DIII has a clear advantage, because it is perceived as being specced nearly as the 1DX - this is of course a false impression, it is half as fast and has a plastic chassis - but what matters is not what is, its what the buyer thinks is, and the D600 is at a clear disadvantage - it is specced below the D4, and therefore perceived as not as good. In practice I would guess the main deficits against the 5DIII make very little difference in the type of photography either camera will be used for.
