Always had a FF street DSLR in mind..
10 months ago

....high DR, minimal noise, detailed super clean images. Hoping for much better maybe than the great K5 sensor & still in a relatively small package....just like what many folks talk a lot about! Without however, unrealistic expectations that I should get it at the easy shooting, high ISO's that most want to shoot at! Not to mention the screaming for precise AF under all conditions, all subjects with minimal user dexterity. It's a shame that there's more appetite for massaging images into perfect histograms than creating content by developing personal photographic skills....oops! I'm diverging...anyway, opportunity knocked & a D600 crossed my path.

I like it a lot! Handling & menus have been a little cumbersome compared to Pentax. Available time to shoot it has been short so to gain familiarity, I'm shooting strictly MF primes. IQ is superb. No oil showing yet!

A recent quick one. As can be seen, DOF is slightly off as I missed the subject's face (not by much!) At 100 asa the DR & virtualy noiseless detail is excellent. It gets better at 50 asa! .....Please, no K3 high ISO smeared detail comparisons! (No offence meant )

D600 & Nikkor Ais 35mm F2.0, 100ASA, 1/125 @ F4.0 hand held. The exif says 20mm @ F5.6 because I forgot to change the lens data when I changed the lens.
