Nikon D600 Rumor - "entry level FF"

Thoughts on the above? Anyone going to cancel their D800 order and wait to see if it pans out?

Apparently Nikon felt that there was not enough existential angst out there about the D800 and decided to throw this in the mix. Either that or someone's got a sly sense of humor.

I'm far more likely to give Nikon my hard-earned cash for this kind of body than a D800, depending on how the other specs come out. Don't need 36MP, but would love more DR and cleaner high ISO images than my D700.

I may cancel my far-down-the-queue D800 pre-order if this rumor becomes concrete.

The question is, how much "entry level" is it going to be? Like the D3x00, the D5x00 or the D7x00 ? I hope it doesn't have a lower body type as the D7x00. Focusing motor is a must, AF, frame rate and controls are important too.

Image D7000 with FX sensor, 16MP (maybe D4 sensor?) with similar ISO to D3s and D4 (D700 is getting old). That would be something !

I think that's close to what bobn2 (IIRC) has been predicting.

I'm guessing: 24MP, $2300, more 'pro' body than D7000. If it is a D7000-ish form, maybe $1800-$1900.

It will be great if Nikon can release an entry level D7000 like full frame camera body.....FF bodies should become affordable by now.......

Think about what this would eventually mean to upper-end ($1600+) aps-c DSLR - and what mirrorless might mean to lower-end aps-c DSLR. aps-c DSLR finds itself in a pinch.

So Nikon is releasing a D600 to compete with the 5DIII? Hmmm...

nikon did not throw this out. a website not linked to nikon says this as a rumor. and

"I would rate this rumors at 40% probability"

so the web site says there is less then 50% chance it will happen.

nothing to get so excited about.

In the future, maybe. But right now, Nikon can barely make enough D800s and D4s to satisfy demand.

I just don't see what incentives they'd have in coming out with a cheaper FX DSLR that will cannibalise their more expensive models.

EVF is for the low end

EVF is a compromise that might be OK as a means to compact size or cost reduction or as an alternative to the very small OVFs found in entry level DSLRs. It is good for filming.
But compared to a FF OVF it is second rate.

Th development cycle for a new product takes too long to simply react to a bunch of loons on DPReview.

If something is coming it was planned long ago.

Still not a D700's replacement
In reply to moving_comfort, Apr 26, 2012

Interesting, but still not a D700's replacement. More like a D7000 + FF.

Could be a huge success if priced around 2K USD. Maybe that's why Nikon keeps bringing cheaper FF primes and zooms. Will there be 70-200 f/4?

Perhaps not a D700 replacement, but they can land one in my bag. With some of the excellent and cheap primes, nice walk around set.

Maybe but the other two rumors this morning about a D900 and a D8000 are also causing me to cancel my D800 order.

I will probably just pre-order a D5 and wait for that

This really is a great forum. I have learned so much about corporate ethics and policies, shipping schedules, customer service complaints and big versus small stores.

What a wealth of information.

Agree makes sense to use the same sensor in the Sony A-99 and the body size will be similar both probably be compact as the D7000 & A-77.

Why not ? - looks good in that we are getting multiple FF with different flavours - probably see in couple of years time a baby D4 in D800 body - wonder whether Sony & Nikon going to match Canon departure into pro camera video like Canon 1D X - C ?
