Cant Decide D600 since I really want a D400.... thoughts? would you get a D3200 in the meantime?
Nov 15, 2012

Hi Everyone - I have been gone from this forum but used to be active a few years back.  I have a D200, lots of good lenses except on the wide end and also I have a Fiji X100

I really just want a D400 since I shoot some sports - will Nikon ever make it....  But I also do lots of family, kids, and events so a D600 looks sweet - But I would also need a FX wide and FX walk around - I have primes and the long end covered.  Plus is the D600 going to work well with sports?  I heard the crop mode is not easy to shoot with if I want the extra length on my 70-200.

Crazy as it seems I have been thinking about getting a D3200 or D5200 to tide me over just so I can get some of that great IQ that the D200 is lacking.

Have any of you ever gone this direction or thought about this move?  Then I am out only $500 and that small DSLR will be nice for travel (Though I might get a Sony RX100)

Or are you guys thinking DX is dead?

I might also get rid of my Fuji X100 - focus is soooo slow.  I dont mind the fixed lense its that slow focus that sucks.  A d3200 focus is not the same as a D200 but its faster and more accurate than a X100

(My lens collection is as follows (10.5 fish, 18-55vr, 18-70, 35 f2, 50 1.8, 105 2.8 VR, 180 2.8, 80-200 2.8, 70-200vr, 70-300, 1.4 and 2.0 TC)  Yes I need something better on the wide as somehow I lost my 12-24 Tokina....

Any thoughts?
