Comfort holding the D600 for many hours vs D700
Dec 6, 2012

Hi,

I've been going back and forth between choosing a new D600 vs. used  D700 as a primary camera for next year's wedding season (to take over from a D300s).  Something I haven't seen in reviews ... and I suppose it differs for every user... is the comfort of the grip after long periods of holding with a heavy lens.  I know from experience with the D300s that the D700 won't irritate my hand by pushing any pressure points or pinching... but what about the D600?

I've held one in the store and noticed that the top of the grip, (below the shutter button) has a sharper edge than the D700 which is what causes me worry.

Would anybody care to share how they've found holding the D600 for long periods?
