It reminds me a certain Panasonic-Leica lens model with debris around the back of the periphery of the front element... 2-3 copies with the same issue... Nikon will lose sales out of this issue, for sure. It's what Canon would hope to allow enough time for 6D to hit the market.

RStyga: A request: Please post a review on Canon 6D as soon as possible (i.e., when the camera is released to the market)!! Can't wait... :-)

It appears that D600 is a very well thought FF DSLR, and, at last, 'relatively' compact. The sensor dust is, however, a worrying issue (as a figure of speech, only K-5 'knows' the hell it went through with its stained sensor thriller).

I'd also like to add, after handling one, that the grip feels a little bit less substantial in volume (compared to the ideal 5D III's for instance) and, due to my somewhat long fingers, my hand felt -not much but nevertheless- cramped after a little while. Of course, this is subjective and depends on the size of one's hands.

Regards,

@ Josh152

Of course.

MatzeB: There's a petition for Nikon to find a solution for the dust problem:

Sign it if you like to put some pressure on Nikon.

Can we also petition Nikon to stop making bazoookas-size DSLRs? Don't shoot, just joking... :-)

That'd be great. According to published specs, 6D does appear to be superior on less points to D600 than what D600 is to 6D; however, 6D is, subjectively if you'd think, more compact, better designed, and with a more ergonomic grip. You've got to like a camera, after all it's an art tool, and, brand-bias aside (I really like quite a few film SLR Nikons), I can't relate neither to D600's design nor interface; the latter is a great FF camera but not for me.

RubberDials: Every other camera manufacturer has centre pinch caps - Sony, Pentax, Nikon, Olympus - even Minolta had them.

There's me thinking it's finally time for Canon to come clean with it's users and give them in-body IS and they roll out centre-pinch caps. Simply amazing.

And why Canon should not make in-body SI for APS-C DSLRs?

Direct link | Posted on Nov 7, 2012 at 01:26 UTC

The prices are indeed Canon. $850 for a 35mm F2! What is it made of? Silver with diamonds? Wow, that IS must be really "good". I guess Pentax is pretty unperceptive to have incorporated it in the camera body; now, the marketing dept cannot charge an additional arm and a leg every time they release a new lens.

By the way, DPR, you have a mistake in the 24-70mm's specs table: it does have IS (or the press release is contradictory).

No doubt... and it's as true as that Nikon advanced DSLRs are lightweight and compact....

Big Brother on the go for the appropriate "sheep"; and hordes of them will be. Ah, no, it's social networking! 1984 in 2012, and very subtle, or not. Isn't that "great"?

Gary Dean Mercer Clark: This camera makes me want to buy a Sigma DP2M and DP1M for $2000.00 and have $799.00 change left. DP2M will blow away the overpriced RX1 in image detail and quality.

Sigma cameras produce chromatic aberrations; maybe not the conventional colour fringing, agreed, but colour patches and blotches, plus washed out colours at ISO>400; even at ISO 400 Sigma loses its touted Hi-Res output. Rock-bottom-base ISO, good light and careful shooting is required.

RStyga: And, of course, we'll be forced to use the latest Adobe product... How nice of them... 'Sick of their "policy"... Although I own Elements 8, I have to purchase, again, Elements 10 to use ACR 6.7 for my K-01...

I did not ask for a free upgrade to Elements 10 but downward compatibility to ACR 6.7. Elements 8 (and 9) are not compatible with ACR 6.7; Elements nine is the previous version of Elements (until 11 is out). ACR 6.7 is NOT the latest ACR. So, yes, I think I do expect different marketing strategy practices from Adobe; or, maybe... I shouldn't...

The resolution of a Merrill camera is field-measured, if I'm not mistaken, at about 19-23MP, practically not different from RX1's. On the other hand, the chromatic "mess" on Sigma cameras' output is very obvious and destructive.

Unless Sigma improves on Foveon X3 sensor chromatic aberration and noise performance there's no future for this -otherwise impressive- technology.

LOL @ meanwhile... how true...

The price is not right. Full stop. I'll stick to my Panasonic 45-200mm purchased brand new for $180 and I'll live with the 'hardships' of isolating a subject while my wallet is thicker by $1300. Thanks.

I'd take that as an exaggerated comment out of frustration. Have you experienced, up-close, the idiosyncratic behaviour of Merrills? Their AF speed? Then, you'll know frustration..

I'd like to say a certain type of criticism of the reliability of these tests is selective, if not downright meaningless. What is wrong with comparing the output under controlled and disclosed conditions of various cameras when most photographers do not even have access to more than a couple of cameras, let alone proper lenses and controlled conditions to conduct these tests? The DPR tests are simply useful, -typically strong- indicators of the tested cameras IQ performance, not photo-Bible articles of non-photographer pixel-peepers.

SigmaChrome: Why, oh why can't I choose the Sigma SD1 as a comparison camera, DPR? You don't want to...? Nikon don't want you to...?

I'm afraid you have no point for me to miss it. The fact that SD1 is not available through D600's review is a technical issue. Just do it through SD1's review.. what's is the big deal?

I'm sure you've been using Sigma cameras... it's pretty evident from your user name. I have owned one too but, besides the base-ISO output marvel, most else about Sigma cameras is severely crippling to the photographic experience.
