Just tried the D600 at Costco today...
Oct 29, 2012

I brought my trusty D90 as a reference and took similar pictures after adjusting the settings. On the D600 everything came out a little darker across the baord, regardless of ISO. Every time the D90 came out ahead.

Despite the same picture style settings (yep compared in the cameras) the D90 looked sharper and better color.

There was more distortion on the 24-85 than my 18-105 on the D90 also a little surprising.

I will try to post my pics for comparison but this makes me have second thoughts about ordering a D600 as an upgrade from my D90.

What could I have done wrong?

While waiting to upload the pictures I have posted the EXIF data below.

Btw, when I at times moved the SD card between my D90 and the D600 I got Error on the D600, despite shutting it down before removing/inserting the card. Cant say I got a good vibe from the camera at this time and I am on the waiting list at B and H photo for the kit version right now to take advantage of the rebate Nikon has going on.
