"And so we have here the camera, with meager functionality, except for the expected noise property, and the depth of field resulting from this frame size, at a price which knocks off some people, while others say "most affordable Full Frame." I am struggling to make up my mind, is it a good price, or gold digging? I think its the latter."

I think the D600 was designed to sustain significant price discounting later and still earn a profit. They start out a little high to test the market. Marketing 101 says that you can always lower the price, never increase it later. Also, I am not sure who copied who but it is amazing Nikon and Canon come out with such similar models within a couple of weeks.

I am hoping that the Sony sensor, (if the D600 is Sony), will make it into a great "pro" Pentax body for the same price or less than the D600. Similar to K5/D7000 sharing.
