On Nikon announces D600 24MP enthusiast full-frame DSLR article (235 comments in total)

3fifty7: I don't understand what this camera is for. Isn't it kind of a 5D MkII spec in an even lower grade body? And why are people calling it affordable? It costs nearly £2000. Two thousand pounds. For "entry level" FX? Photographers: save some money and buy a D700; videographers: I suspect you're partly to blame ;-) £2K is pro price for what could (and will, I hope) be pro performance, but in one of those fiddly little consumer boxes. Go ahead and make these toys, Nikon, by all means. Dazzle game consumers with bells, whistles, user presets and big numbers. And video. But what I would like, please, is a new improved D700 - i.e. a stripped-down D4 in smaller but still pro-grade body. I'd pay two grand for that. As a working photographer, I would use it. This... this is a lot of fluff.

@Bamboojled apologies but, for my purposes at least, there's fluff on that list @kayone I'd say it's you who sounds angry. You've taken an opinion about a piece of consumer electronics and made it personal. Also your comment, lacking as it is in any real content, looks like an excuse to do so. Pretty trollish.

I'd say my main disappointment with this announcement is the camera body. Durability and appearance. They matter in business. So it isn't a professional's camera, but it's pretty highly priced to be and enthusiast's. Perhaps because of the presence of the D700 in the last generation, this generation's line-up (so far) appears to have a hole in it. I'm hoping it gets filled.
