D600 + 24-120: first contact
Oct 21, 2012

I’ve been planning a D600 /24-120 purchase when I get back to the States.

I stopped at a local shop to look at the combo yesterday. It’s heavy. The D600 feels fine and is only a little bigger/heavier than my faithful D80. But that lens is a mutha, in terms of travel.

I travel v light and was thinking this would be a good one-lens solution. Now I’m thinking twice.

Are you guys using this lens for travel, to walk around with all day?  28-300 seems like too much of an IQ compromise.  Not sure what to do. Both these zooms seem overpriced, but there’s no real competition.

(BTW, in Russia D600 body is about $2400; 24-120 about $1500.)
