It is cheaper and better.

Yes, it is cheaper because it is an "enthusiast's" FX body, where as the 5DIII is semi-pro. Better?, do you own both? Could you provide examples?

Also Nikon's fix lenses (G-serie) are much better than Canon's 50 and 85mm dinosaurs.
Nikon's 24-70 is not as good as Canon 24-70 mk2, but waaay cheaper.
(But personally I will buy Tamron 24-70 IS.)

Yes, the Tamron would be a good entry level lens to match the entry level FX D600.

Before freaking out on me Canon forum users, please understand that I am hoping to get opinions from both sides before spending a small fortune on a body and lenses.

To start, i only talk about the D600 cause I am not looking for 36MP. Its just way too much for me to handle and I am not the best at using photoshop.

I mostly shoot people and landscapes. Lenses I would buy are the 24-70mm and the 50mm. Will pick up an 85mm around the holidays.

Any first-hand opinions would be most appreciated. Thank you!
