Some impressions of D600
Sep 25, 2012

Traded in my D700 and D90 bodies for D600 - and happy about it.

Positive impressions so far:

1) Shutter much better damped than D700, quite significant difference actually
2) Brighter viewfinder than in D700

Some negative issues, though.

1) No way to assign a 100% to the OK button. Really annoying.

2) D600 feels sluggish to start-up compared to D700 - and much so. Switch on the camera and hit "Menu" button, noticeable lag. When camera is already on, no lag. I wonder whether D600 has an issue with initial reading of Scandisk 16GB Pro 95 mb/s cards I use?

I find picture quality superior to D700. Also my initial finding is that NX2 works better with D600 NEFs than with D700's. I always thought than my Nikon 24-70 was a bit like lemon, yet this picture illustrates than it is able for tack sharp images (f/3.5, 1/25, ISO 2200, handheld). PP in NX2, unsharp mask with parameters of 45% 5/2.
