drmrbrewer: In the UK there's only a £250 difference in price between a D600 body and a D800 body at present... differential is not big enough IMHO.

The D800 can be had for £2099 at this moment in time; what sense is there in the D600 at its release price?

tyb: What a tease article, I'm so dissapointed! I saw the headline and started reading and reading and only finally get to the end to read that you'll publish your buyers guide in a few weeks. Hello, Christmas is what two weeks away, do you know many people have bought or be buying that compact or mirrorless camera in the next week? How many reviews are already out there on the most recent mirrorless. I used to come here to read about things first, these days come here and read for possible validation, but you guys are so behind the times on lens and this is an example of so late on a body review. Whats up with you guys?

@HeezDeadJim: I read the post by keepreal to be comment on the nature of photography covered by DP Review, rather than criticism regarding brand favouritism. As such, my reply related solely to this issue and it's a little unfair to mis-appropriate my words.

Regarding favouritism and Apple-centrism, I have to say that I haven't found it so. The fact of the matter is that the market itself is heavily weighted in Apple's favour because it is the dominant product; in terms of DP's reviews and news items, and as a non-Apple tablet owning, Android using punter, I find them fairly even-handed within the remit of the current situation. This is a fast maturing market and I don't doubt that coverage will change to reflect this.

And what exactly is proper photography?

Whatever your opinion might be, you have the choice to read or not to read an article; some of us do actually want to read these articles, which pertain to the basic principles of photography - namely, image making.

All photography is manipulation, whether it's pre or post capture, and I for one applaud the options and democratisation that digital photography affords. Please don't seek censorship!
