Re: Used D600 for $1200 seems more balanced

  • 2 stops higher dynamic range at base ISO, 1 stop higher dynamic range at High ISO, close to 1 stop better High ISO noise in midtones
  • No High ISO blooming issue
  • No low ISO banding
  • 24MP when needed, modest processing overhead when not
  • Despite cheaper feeling build, haven't read many reports of D600's failing
  • Better Live View
  • Better Video
  • Better LCD
  • Better Auto ISO
  • Better low-light AF
  • Lighter
  • Quieter shutter
  • Lifetime shutter replacement courtesy of Nikon

a pro you forgot:

  • dual memory cards

and some cons:

  • less weather sealing
  • not built as well
  • slower frame rate
  • fewer AF points
  • battery grip doesn't take professional (D4) batteries
  • SD cards
  • amateur control scheme

i'm not saying that it's not a good camera. just that there might indeed be reasons to choose a D700 over D610.
