D600 @ < $2000 according to Nikon rumours.

In fact they say $1,600.

More usefully for me, it will have an AF screw, which means I should be able to ebay all my Nikon primes for good money.

Why mention it here? I like MFT for the size. I think the OM-D is well up to FF standards on a pixel by pixel basis, but I envy the D800 owners their 36MP. A 16-24MP FF is of no interest to me at all. Many people here however seem to see the virtue of MFT as price, and would prefer FF, especially for DoF and high ISO. This sounds like good news for them, if true. You should be able to pick up a D600 and a handful of primes off ebay for the cost of an OM-D and the 12, 25, 45 and 75 combo.

So if you want FF but were put off by the price, I'd hang on a bit.

Me, I'm delighted with the OM-D and everything I have FF will be going as soon as I can get my lazy head around selling on ebay.

As for the D600 itself - despite DPR's bizarre review the D800 eats the 5DIII's lunch. Based on rumoured spec, the D600 should match the 5DIII feature for feature for much less money, with a far better sensor. Nikon seem to be gunning for Canon at the moment, and they are winning.
