Xentinus: What about D7000 owners?!

What about D610 owners?!

For most people who had this issue a new shutter didn't fix the oil problem in the past and Nikon is replacing the D600's shutter since the early days.

RichRMA: So does this mean all those D600's languishing on dealer shelves will be sent back, fixed and sent back to the dealers for sale, or will it be the responsibility of the customer? Imagine the logistics of this for Nikon.

There are no new D600 left anyway for some time already.

Andersonbill: I sent my first D600 in for the repair last year. They repaired it, but dropped it and had to replace the front ring. They sent back, it worked for about a week and then autofocus failed. They replaced that camera. I'm about to send it in and take them up on the offer. The shutter has been the problem from the beginning, now I'll get a new shutter and it's unlikely to be the same as the old one.

I'm just guessing here, but I think I will get the D610 shutter. Now if they would also give me the firmware that goes in the D610, I'm pretty sure I would have a D610!! Sweet.

No

JJ1983: Erm... I had this done free of charge months ago. The D600 now works great and dust is not an issue anymore.

Sure ;)

ageha: It's sad Nikon won't have an own raw converter anymore. NX-D is just a rebranded and free edition of Silkypix.

You're correct but all the other in-camera settings I expect from a 1st party raw converter are missing.

Heaven is for real: For those haters or don't anything about Sony/Zeiss Partnership...

"Sony is the brand of choice for people looking for great design and high quality. In 1996, Sony came out with its first camcorder with a Carl Zeiss lens. Since then, Carl Zeiss and Sony’s cooperation has expanded to include compact digital cameras and camcorders, high-quality bridge cameras and interchangeable lenses for the Sony Alpha DSLR camera. Sony and Carl Zeiss develop Lenses for Sonys digital cameras together. Then the manufacturing takes place in Sony facilities according to Carl Zeiss specifications. It’s a partnership that combines premium-quality electronics and sensor technology with the best-possible optics for film and video cameras."

So please stop spreading wrong information!

You have to love those Sony, Nokia and Logitech propaganda texts on Zeiss' page. I wonder how much those 3 companies have to pay for Zeiss' advertising service. :) But maybe that's all their partnerships are about.

DT200: "From what we were able to see, the camera focuses slightly faster than the previous NEX 6 but it isn’t anything with blazing speed. "

Need more hands on reviews.

"As mentioned ,we had a brief opportunity to play with a preproduction sample, and it’s no joke: The autofocusing is extremely fast and responsive."

You can read comments like that in almost every preview these days.

pew pew: Imagine a camera like the a6000, with A mount a bit bigger because the mount distance, but still small with all those minolta lenses available for really cheap, that would be perfect :d

It will have the same size as an A6000 with Sony's adapter slapped on. No point in selling the same camera with a non-removable adapter glued on.

ChefPisi: is this camera made in China like the NEX 6? I sure hope not!

It's made well and as everybody knows it isn't made in China, it's made in Thailand.

Babka08: Why all the talk of Nikon and Canon comparisons? This Sony seems more like a rangefinder competitor, no? Probably shake in your boots, Leica. But the whole EVF thing still isn't fully baked so not quite yet...

The Sony isn't a rangefinder.

munro harrap: Do you realize it costs as much as a Nikon D800? Have you got it figured too that the lenses are only just emerging and in size rival Nikon and Canon, and if you want to use the NEX or other lenses with an adaptor you have an awkward unfriendly and without AF (possibly), VERY expensive package on your hands. Of course, great to be able to stick your Nikkors on it, but pointless and absurd, since it is far too slow to use. This Sony takes ITs pictures- the shutter lag is so great that YOU cannot take YOUR pictures using either of these lovely new Alpha A7 and A7R machines. Yes, same problem with detail-smearing slow 5D MkII and MkIII, but if your subjects do not move you'll be OK.

They decided to make a SLOOOWW camera, so you be slow to buy it. It was their choice and they should be ashamed. Full autofocus 0.359/362 secs; manual focus lag is 0.261 secs , prefocussed lag is a scandalous 0.163 secs, down from 0.007 secs on their first mirrorless APS-C machine DSC-R1 (2005).

Oh my, you got it wrong. You don't need an adapter for NEX lenses.

Seansprague: If you are a professional travelling photojournalist like myself, then micro 4/3s make most sense. I can carry three small panny bodies, five superb lenses, flash and audio equipment all in one average sized camera bag and not do my shoulders in - and results are great. Clients never complain. Who really needs more than 16 MP for magazine work, besides they'll come out with 24 MP 4/3s soon anyway, I imagine, in case that matters. My FF Canons and all their heavy expensive lenses and older Nikons stay at home most of the time these days. Anybody want to buy them off me?

No, thanks.

In reply to:

instamatic: To answer Nikon why their mirrorless is not selling in the US: Nikon 1 has a small sensor, while the US consumer expects at least a DX sensor. Why? Probably because many hobbyists are vainly hoping to one day have some success at shooting weddings, or whatever - which for most people never materializes, but still the illusion is there. Regardless of where the hobbyist is on their photography journey, it is universally known that wedding/portrait photography requires a large sensor for shallow and popular depth of field with fast lenses. And where are the fast lenses for mirrorless? Thirdly why in the world the lesser Nikon 1 cameras have flash sync only at 1/60 sec? Why aren't DSLR speedlights compatible?

Nikon's compact cameras are also not up to par. Where is a compact with a 'standard' zoom lens and aperture somewhere between f/1.4 and f/2.5 or similar. Why aren't all Nikon's compact cameras allowing saving RAW files. Where is built in WI-FI?

Where is the D400?

The D70 had a CCD.

That makes no sense.
