On Just Posted: Nikon D600 In-depth Review article (499 comments in total)

Another well put together review, in such a short time, excellent job, well done . I mentioned this in the thread posted on the Nikon FX page: small typo pg 17: ""files from the D600 are hard to tell apart from the 36MP D600"

Steve oliphant: It's great to have a target like this to compare images, but one thing that really shows noise is a red fabric with dark red pattern and light red pattern on it.This will show how nikon is very good at keeping the pattern ,but other companies like Canon and olympus you would look at the fine print and blacks .I always liked the queens face on the old target.

My 1st reference point was always the fabric swatches on the old scene. Those fabrics with the with the subtle patterns in red green and blue were great.

pieces: The way the new forum is displaying photographs is very disappointing. I put up a set of photos in the following thread http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3273845 a few days ago. These photos are sharp but in the new thread they are flat, lacking detail and sharpness. This is very disappointing and certainly removes any motivation to show any photographs. I will certainly not be posting any under these circumstances.

You can view the images in their full resolution in the gallery, but this is adding extra steps, the image opens in another window, all a very cumbersome implementation and not user friendly at all

No emoticons at all now! Wordpress does not work. The only way to even vaguely show tone or intent in a forum is with these.

A few things I think should be considered which I do not see:

*Stickys* - important topics/news/updates can always be visible at the top of the page of a particular forum. Naturally these can only be selected by the forum moderator.

*Pull down Emoticon bar*: The single biggest drawback of internet forums is the inability to see facial features and hear tone of voice which are the main non-verbal cues we have as to the tone or intent of a post. Emoticons are the only easily available but suboptimal way to do this on the internet. It may alleviate some of the misunderstandings. Not everybody is familiar with the wordpress shortcuts.

*Support for mobiles*: consider an app
