dynaxx: I am confused ; I thought CMOS used a rolling shutter unlike the CCD sensor that exposes the entire 44mm X 33m frame simultaneously.
How can the H system lenses with their central ( global ? ) shutters work with both CCD and CMOS ?
CCD colours have always been better ( like the Fuji X-Pro 1, the last DSLR with CCD ) so this seems to be the trade-off versus practicality.
Oh well, the Fuji X-Pro 1 doesn't even have a CCD!
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.
True but that's just on the Amazon marketplace. The big reputable dealers don't have any left.
AlexBakerPhotoz: Well, good. I did have mine fixed once already a year ago and at that time they replaced the shutter and the CCD and it's clearly been much better. I also wonder if I sent it in again if I'd get the D610 shutter or another D600 one. I'm thinking D610. What would be the point of using the old ones if they even have any left in inventory.
Wow, your D600 had a CCD! lol
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.
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.
JJ1983: Erm... I had this done free of charge months ago. The D600 now works great and dust is not an issue anymore.
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.
plasnu: Image Samples. So much better than any NEX.
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. "http://www.thephoblographer.com/2014/02/11/first-impressions-sony-a6000/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.

What's that supposed to be?
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?
I wish they had any highlights there...
