I am baffled at D600 naysayers..
In reply to fhoffman, Jul 8, 2013

Lenses and QA arguments aside (since they can be easily matched) - I find it very odd/strange to see the naysayers of D600 agreeing to a less featureful, less capable camera like the most canon's including 6D.

D600 vs 6D

24mp vs 20mp (only 4mp more is not a valid comment, we would have stayed at 4mp D2h)

39 focus points vs 11 focus points (is this year 2005?)

9 cross type vs 1 cross (is this year 1980?)

Spot metering on ALL AF points (every basic nikon camera has this wonderful feature)

On board FLASH vs none (6D is not even a pro camera)

On demand grid lines vs NO grid lines

Intervalometer vs none (Nikon has offered this since D200/year 2005)

Virtual Horizon..vs

etc etc

GPS and wifi(gimmic).. well internal 6D GPS is great, but I can use same one in multiple Nikon bodies.

It is purely baffling to see the obvious differences and makes me wonder how one can skip such useful features so easily. If these are useless, then maybe you guys are missing a lot of quantifying factors to improve one's photography.

anyway.. i wouldn't skip or brush off these features for anyone looking for a direct comparison
