Loving attention to raw processing only using whatever software performs "best" (NOT most "convenient" or popular software) for each camera.

I think he's not interested in the old story "bad conversion of fuji xtrans RAW by lightroom".

I don't have the D600, but had the 5DII (a full frame camera) with some fine lenses (like the 35L, the 24LII...).

1) Regarding IQ I think the D600 will be a step ahead not because of colour, DR, high ISO noise...but because a bigger sensor is generally better for detail rendering and bokeh (lenses need less resolving power).

2) The Nikon lineup is complete: you can have whatever lens you want: zoom, prime, fast, macro, stabilized, t&s, tele, superwide...ecc ecc. Fuji's is not (yet).

However for me 2) is not very important, as I'm not a macro or sport or wildlife shooter nor a pro. The important thing is weight+size. A D600 with 3 or 4 fast primes or zooms is a big and heavy setup. I gave up a bit of IQ (not so much though) for a more convenient package.

Mr. President, I'm not saying we wouldn't get our hair mussed. But I do say... no more than ten to twenty million killed, tops. Uh... depended on the breaks.
