Why not a D600?
In reply to xador, Jan 9, 2013

There are many, many reasons to get an OMD, but low noise at ISO 3200 and shallow DOF are not among them.

The OMD is decent at 3200, but probably gives up almost two stops to the D800... IBIS offsets this for still objects, but not for other subjects.

And shallow DOF, well, the 25mm F1.4, 45mm F1.8 and 75mm f1.8 are enough for me, but likely not if you are used to an 85mm f1.4 on full frame.

What lenses due you plan on using if you get a working D800?
