Re: What if a 24mp FF D600 is released?

Hi, I'm glad that you found the perfect tool for you. I could switch to canon for its 5D3 too, the specs are just about perfect, but I much prefer the Nikon ergonomy. How do you feel with a 5D3 in your hands? better, worst or just different from the D700? I'm wondering if a 24mp FF Nikon is released like the rumored D600 (for less than 2000$), you will not be tempting to switch again.

I really like the ergonomics. I didn't have an issue with the D700 per se, but the 5D3 feels a bit more organic if that makes any sense. I also like the menu system layout better and the c1-c3 banks that are easily accessible. While the autofocus is fantastic, there are almost too many options to tweak. I prefer the straight forward settings I had on the D700. Regarding switching back, I don't care what brand I shoot as long as it fits my needs. I have thoroughly enjoyed every Canon and Nikon I have owned- from a Coolpix 950 up to my 5D3.
