I currently own a Canon 7D and have also invested in high quality Canon lenses including the 10-22mm ultra-wide, 24-70 f/2.8L (1st gen) and 70-200 f/4L IS.

I plan to upgrade to a full frame camera and am leaning towards Nikon D600. This camera appears to have the overhand compared to Canon 6D and I've almost convinced myself that it's worthwhile to make the shift...

I plan to sell my Canon gear and use the money to buy the D600 body and some lenses.

Ideally I would like to have lenses that cover the same focal lengths as my current set up, and as my budget has its limitations I am considering these two lenses:

  • Sigma 12-24mm II
  • Nikon 28-300mm

I'm looking for any advice on these two lenses and my "strategy" as a whole. Will the supposed quality gains in the D600 body be outweighed by the degradation of quality in the lenses? Am I better off staying with Canon and buying a 6D instead? Any suggestions for an alternative/better combination of lenses that falls into the same rough budget range as the two above?

Any advice is most appreciated!



Are you serious or just trolling ?

If you are then take my advice: Keep your Canon gears, if you still want to switch steer away from the D600 - cheaply built, horrible quality control, the ideal is good but the execution is terrible. I am a Nikon shooter but I'd not touch the D600 until Nikon sort out the problem with grease, oil and dust on sensor - can't imagine me cleaning the sensor every few thousands shots.

Nikon either shapes up or ships out.

I would agree to keep the Canon. But there's nothing wrong with the D600. Quality issues are totally blown out of proportion. After several shots, the oil goes away. And it's not cheaply built. I do agree that they can be catty when there is a problem.
