Reviewing your shot on the LCD screen

Hey guys,

I am about to switch to Nikon, and I checked out the D600 at my local photo store yesterday.

I had a question about reviewing the shot after you take a picture, you know, to check if you nailed the focus and the exposure.

On my Canon 5D II, when I zoom all the way into the shot I just took, the image quality of the LCD is very nice, I don't see any pixels, just the fine resolution at 100%.

However, with the D600 I tried at the store, when I zoomed all the way into the picture I had just taken, the display was horribly pixelated, like viewing a document in Photoshop at 800%. I was wondering if that is something that all Nikon cameras exhibit, or if I was in some weird mode that allows you to zoom more than 100% into the picture.

In all honesty, I was completely unable to check whether my shot was in focus based on that LCD shot review.
