Thanks for the history. I am torn between D600 and 6D (and D800). It would cost me a fortune to go 6D because of flash, lenses etc.

I'm wary of D600 and D800 because of 'issues'...

Using D300s at the moment still...

Before the firmware update I would have suggest you run like hell from D800. I have shot two weddings already with D800 after the firmware update. I can say this with absolute confident that D800 is the camera to have.

I know what you mean about cost. It cost me a lot to move to Nikon because I had to sell a lot of stuff. This is why I was so hesitant to move back to Canon again when I was having issues with my D800 because I built my entire kit around D800.

I now have so much trust and confident on my D800 that I shot the entire wedding this past Saturday with D800 without bringing out my 5DIII not even once. That says a lot because not so long, D800 was not even good enough for backup.

For D600 I was never crazy about it. The AF is cramped mainly on the middle, NO PC connection, maximum shutter at 1/4000, flash sync 1/200 sec, only take SD cards and host of other little things that were missing. I won't even mention the oil on sensor. Canon 6D is even worst.

D800 is a more complete system and price is very reasonable. The only reason to switch to Canon will be 5DIII. 5DIII is jack of all trades and master of all.
