FranciscoJG: I have no doubt that the future of DSLR will be the FX sensor, already know this for a few years. They say that the sensors are more expensive, so machines are. This is not entirely true. The evolution of sensors was this, to reach the largest, it was necessary to begin by small, it was necessary to develop technical and very much investment was made. This route is already done.Today we can abandon the DSLR APS-C and make a whole new range only on FX, with the same prices, with prices to suit all tastes. Let the APS-C sensors for compact cameras of all kinds, leaving the filth of 3, 4 or 5 mm sensor, stop producing it, or leave it to the phones. A D7000 with FX sensor (the D600) does not have to cost twice the price, this is a lie. Can this machine D600 be the beginning of a paradigm shift in the photographic industry? I hope so.
from an old grandma just wants to take a pic perspective, please continue making those sh@#$#tty sensor and keep the price under $200. thank you
audijam: 87% gold reward?! so 5DIII is only 82% and we should all trade in for D600?
I see. So great news to all D800 users too. Trade in your D800 and get a new D600 because it scores better than your D800. Note that D800 and 5D3 shares the same score.
@ChristopherKnapp - nice one~

this is SICK!!!!!!!!!!!!
JDThomas: Sigma has proved before that they have the ability to outdo Nikon with some of their prime lenses. The 50mm f/1.4 being a good example. I have no doubt that this lens will at least be equal with the Nikon version. Sigma is stepping up to become a major player in the lens market.
Of course this Sigma lens has a polycarbonate body as opposed to a magnesium one like the Nikon, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Lighter weight and lower price. Most people don't seem to mind that most entry to mid-level cameras are made out of polycarbonate. The stuff is strong.
This will be my next lens purchase. I hope they come out with a 24mm f/1.4 soon.
i dropped by sigma 50 1.4 on concret multiple times and this @#$# is still good. just a small chip on the lenshood hinge.
also, i don't think any wedding photographers would be willing to choose heavy equipments over light ones and again we don't need weathersealing~~ i just need a light, fast, AF reliable lens...
Mr Fartleberry: Garbage. I'll give you $299 for a f2.8. Providing it's better than the 25 year old Canon and Nikon offerings.
okay give me one
i want this lens...i want all Sigma lens could be calibrated by using the USB dock so we could do it at home.
Rooru S: Is it safe to think that Sigma is going to redo many of their current lens lineup and bring them into the new Global Vision Lineup? (with the S, A and C thing?)
don't worry...sigma's design normally has a short life..
only fools buy samsung...
topstuff: The moaners are pretty predictable, but I think they miss the point.
Amazing best in sector AF. Very fast operation. Tiny lenses.
And IQ which is perfectly excellent for most uses, especially the use of ipads and LCD panels which so many people use these days to view their images. For such people ( and there are many ) the little Nikon is perfect.
Besides, the original 1 series has sold pretty well. This will build on that.
People carping on about wanting a bigger sensor in a Nikon mirrorless are missing the point - this camera is not for them and was never intended to be for them.
And if you tend to use an ipad to view your images, then complaining about the small sensor and IQ is pretty moot.
DOF was my only criticism of the small sensor, now ameliorated to some extent by the new fast portrait lens.
Its not a bad offering. Bravo Nikon.
Still wish it has a flip up rear LCD though, as per OMD and NEX
soccer moms won't buy this...
i actually like the retro look but definitely don't like the 2020 hyper-inflation price tag with 2004 performance.............................sigh~
Denton Taylor: Hopefully 5Dmkiii comes right behind...
just about to say it too....please~~~ do it for 5D3!!!
this is number 1 in my opinion.
this is ISO 100?!
tommy leong: Class 10 is about the SD memoryNOT the wifi transfer speed.
is that correct?
so, while it CAN transfer RAW files, it didn't mention how many days that will take.....
class 10 is wayyyyyyy to slow. even at 45mb/s is still too low....
Louis Dallara: You can buy a whole Samsung camera with built in wifi for $129 on AmazonWhy would you spend $99 on this card? IMHO.My Eye-Fi X2 never worked right, so why would I gamble on this card, besides it doesn't work with a D800
Eye-Fi would hate you if they see this....shhhhh....LOL!
16GB is not even enough!
audijam: what's the relationship between Benro and Sirui?
or share the similar blueprints (with many other whatever brands too)
what's the relationship between Benro and Sirui?
Jogger: Waste of time since these are taken with the kit lens. The limiting factor is the lens not the camera. Not sure why DPR doesnt use the same lens across bodies so that proper comparison can be made. Something like the Zeiss 50/2 Makro can be used on Nikon and Canon bodies. For the m43 cameras they use a macro lens.
DPR's test is more meaningful for average photographers. Pros shouldn't even look at D600 from the beginning anyways. If you are a pro, buy D4/D800, period.
