I think this camera is perfect, if they want to improve the lens than 23mm f 1.2 would do the trick.
timo: I don't think I would ever make a camera-buying decision on the basis that 16MP is inadequate for my needs. Scarcely more than ten years ago most people thought 6MP was adequate, and they were mostly right.
Big sensors are better than small sensors..... That being said I have captured outstanding images with my Samsung galaxy s5 and printed them 11x17 and was amazed at how good they looked. The photographer takes the picture not the camera is but a tool. Megapixels are an advertising tool and for bragging. Bigger pixels equals better dynamic range and at 16 you will have all the detail you need.
JPEG Tone Curves / Dynamic RangeThe D600 vs. D610 same everything why would the D600 have a wider Dynamic Range?
I think the dust issue is from their new manufacturing process. The camera internal parts are all soldered together. This may also be an issue when they come up with a fix. Since the parts will have to be de-soldered then re-soldered.
I cleaned my fourth D600, yes forth before it's initial use. I have not (knock on wood) had a (major) dust issue so far. Oil is my issue, I have wet cleaned the sensor after 500 frames and at 1300 the oil is starting to reappear albeit fainter. I will clean the sensor again at 2000. and re-evaluate at 3000 shots with fingers crossed.
Again I wonder if after 3 or4,000 shots and lets just say 3 or 4 wet cleanings the problem will go away? The issue then becomes will Nikon fix the issue on cameras under Warrantee?
Joes Raw Talk: I find the pictures to be underwhelming and overexposed in some instances. A high end APS-C looks to be about as good or better...especially for these sort of shots. Which brings me to the observation that full-frame may be important for some applications but certainly it is a premium price to pay when you can get an excellent output from the best of the APS-C, for a lot less dollars.
Nikon exposes for the shadows, because the dynamic range of the D600 is so good, you can pull in the highlights.
