I have a D700 that right now I use mainly for wide field astrophoto, I wrote this:

I'm considering to buy a D600. I don't like D800 sensor and D4, that I like, is too expensive. Last weekend I tested a D600 at ISO6400 in a couple of 30" wide field shots. My first impression is that it performs better that D700. What do you think, would you buy it for astrophoto, having a D700 ?

Thanks !

Manel
