Re: D600 vs D800
In reply to RhysM, Apr 5, 2013

i have the d600 but also use the d800 quite a bit (loaner from a friend)

size and weight favors the d600 even though i must say the d800 is better to grip and handle

i prefer the controls on the d800 but if you don't know better the d600's would be fine

the AF on the d800 is more versatile; the d600 AF points are too centered

the leather like grip on the d800 feels better and higher quality

i do miss the 1/8000 speed sometimes especially shooting with fast lenses under the sun

overall the d800 is the better camera

whether the weight , the MP, and price differences are worth it is all up to you

for me they're not, the d600 suffices

cheers,
