AP7: Canon 6D compares well with Nikon D3200, both has 11-point AF system and both are entry level camera.
Nikon D3200 is lighter, and may have better low light and DR performance (even though it has APS-C sensor). D3200 also has built in flash and flash sync 1t 1/200 sec (vs no flash and 1/180 sec for Canon).
Canon 6D has no other advantage than DOF as a travel camera.
Can D3200 focus in -3EV? Can you customized the tracking, acceleration and deceleration tracking sensitivities of the AF system of D4? NOOOO, 6D can D4 cant focus in -3EV.
VivaLasVegas: Holy smokes.....a built-in wifi+GPS tagging that is accessible via cellphones. Damn this is sooo futuristic! D600 can tooo, but it'll COST you $$$$ and it's stuffing is hanging out of its body like x-mas lights......just ugly.
6D=Apple lookD600=Android look
That camera is soo UGLY, I will not give myself a chance to get close to it.
Der Steppenwolf, your reply lacks confidence by the amount of edits. Are you trying hard to talking yourself into D600, don't do it, I've seen so many divorces that way.
Holy smokes........6D is made in JAPAN, sweeeeet, I love sushi. FYI, D600 is made in Thailand for maximum high product output(good luck in QC), and maximum profit.
VivaLasVegas: Holy smokes.......6D body is mostly magnesium alloy, unlike D600, which is mostly plastic. D4 has no built-in flash, same as 6D.....D600 has built-in flash just like rebel 650, get it? No popups for maximum weather protection, popups are prone to leaks. Don't count no D600's superficial dental floss sealing.
Actually they do, Canon sensors SUCK in 101% crop when compared to Sony/Nikon tandem.

Holy smokes.........it only weights 770g with battery vs 850g for D600 and 812g for A99. Oh and the battery life is 950 clicks vs 900 for D600 and less than 400 clicks for A99. OVF is the future, EVF is for high schoolers.....take in the dark place and look at the EVF, you'll see what I mean.
facedodge: Canon = Apple iPhoneNikon = Samsung Galaxy III
Sure on paper the Nikon looks like the winner, but there is something to be said for user experience.
Canon offers better ergonomics, menus, lenses, and better aesthetics.
Apple offers a better operating system, with more apps, and better aesthetics.
Bottom line, this board sounds like a bunch of tech geeks arguing about processor speeds and ram when only 1% of the population cares about that when looking for a phone.
Canon and Nikon will both sell boat-loads of these entry FF cameras. Nikon offers you more features for less, Canon offers brand name security and a better user experience. This is was also evident with the 5D3 vs the D800.
Hey guys this is a 6D vs D600 vs A99 Not cellphone wars.
VivaLasVegas: Holy smokes.....a silent mode feature. Beware D600 buyers, this could happen to you! Read what happened to the photographer after they found his Nikon camera.
YESSS rhlpetrus, just having fun, everybody thinks their camera brand has life and blood related to them.......luv ur ansel a. photos, ur the man.

Holy smokes.....it could nail focus in -3EV with just 11 AF pts, damn, that is awesome. FYI, D600 needs 39 AF pts. just to be able to attain focus in -1EV, same with A99. Remember what happen to D7000 vs 60D AF, that's right 60D is much better in tracking and accuracy. No softness issues with AF.

Good morning everyone, I see you guys are busy while I slept.
AbrasiveReducer: Assuming this is made in Thailand and the lens is from China, it doesn't seem like that much of a price breakthrough.
I truely feel your pain GB Landscaper!
kk123: D600 - unfortunately not the answer for replacement of the D300/s -D7000.
- Too low fps 5,5 isn't good enough!- Too low resolution for DX - only 24mp/2,25, not more than 10mp in the DX area.
Nearly useless for bird photos.
Maybe I should buy an old D2X - with 8 fps.
Why on earth isn't Nikon listening to its customers? I refuse to buy D600!
And where is an update of the 80-400mm? And a 300 f4 with stabilizer. And I could use a 500 f5,6. Come on NIKON!!
I feel your pain brother, hang in there, it'll get better soon!
5D3 is the only D700 replacement, it is OKAY to jump ship. You don't have to worry about AF malfunctioning. 5D3's AF is a thundering successes!
ScottRH: Ok, now where is the D700 replacement and the D400 DX ?
5D3 is the TRUE D700 replacement. 61 vs 51 AF pts., 22 vs 12 mp, silent mode at 3fps vs no silent mode, video w/h mic vs no video, same high ISO performance according to DXO, same build and weather sealing(5D3 uses gaskets on buttons), 950g vs 1075g, 35cr2 vs 17nef buffer, 100% vs 95% VF and it can focus in low light -2ev vs -1ev. This is the legitimate D700 replacement spec for specs, NOT D800 or D600.
This is price gouging if this is really made in Thailand, look at the bottom of the cam?
WhaleShark: dpreview has done a disservice to readers by not clearly pointing out that the D600 is a total fail as a serious video tool - even though Nikon is trying to sell it as one.
Why?1) Audio gain (& headphone level) cannot be adjusted while shooting (source: Nikon USA website)2) Aperture (and hence exposure) cannot be adjusted while shooting (source: the preview above)3) As if that wasn't enough, the Nikon website also says that the HDMI output 'may' not have the same pixel dimensions as those that you chose -- in other words, the 1080x1920 output will be what? All sorts of post-production stupidity might result from this.
I would have loved to have listened to the stream of expletives that must have been flowing from the lips of the poor suckers who had to shoot Nikon's doc-style promo videos with these. No wonder so many shots look wooden and set up.
What could have been a nice stills and video camera is actually just a nice stills camera with useless video buttons on it.
So what are you saying, Nikon crippled the video too? If so, then they are really protecting their D4/D800 cams.
Paul Petersen: I was hoping the price would have come in within 500 dollars of the D7000 but now its over twice the current price.WTH Sony has embedded phase detect on their 24mpFF sensor but the new Nikon does not? It seems Nikon has been very skimpy with the features to protect the D800's position.Looks like I will be sticking with the D90 a little longer.Pete
Just to be clear here, there is no such thing as to "protect D800" sales, a sold Nikon camera body is good for the bottom line. Best of all, they will buy numerous AFS glass during their honeymoon. Now if you cripple the features and don't provide direct replacement of certain models like D700, a buyer starts imagining a tour de force of A99 specs, the unmatched EF line up.....then one of this daydreamer jumps ship. So in the end who did Nikon protect?
