Nikon D600 price point
In reply to Karl Scharf, Nov 14, 2012

Oil on the sensor, a dim viewfinder put to shame by the a900/a850 OVF, and an all-plastic build according to iFixit's tear-down:

D600 mostly plastic

The D600 LCD not only does not fold out, it is actually fused to the rear case, and cannot be swapped without replacing the entire back of the camera. The D600 looks like an entry level body with an FF sensor slapped in. It will surely find its market.

While the a99 price of 2800 $ / Euro is too close to the current D800 street prices IMHO, the D600 price point appears as justified at first glance - until you remember what price point the a850 was sold at.
