The files you get out of the d600 are the best you can get from a 35mm DSLR. It has plenty of resolution for huge prints, has DR unimaginable a few years ago, has incredible ISO performance. There has been much made of the dust/oil issue. In my experience, the problem abates after a short while, while the ability to clean a sensor is something that every DSLR owner should know how to do anyway. The combination of low price, great IQ, rugged yet light-weight build, and good AF performance make this a seriously awesome camera. The mild design knock would be the somewhat smaller AF point coverage than other nikon FF cameras. I have not had any kind of issue with it so far, but i can imagine that some might find it limiting. Of course, the only other $2000 FF camera has even smaller coverage and only 9 focus points.
