Was waiting for D600, will probably keep waiting for NEX-FF.

Earlier this summer I was looking to expand into full-frame, preferably with my old Nikkor primes I used to roam with. Unfortunately, Nikon's D700 seemed a bit long in the tooth for the cost, the D800 seemed a bit overkill (and back-ordered). A D600 would have been just about perfect.

But that was then. Since that time, I've become thoroughly hooked on the NEX-7. I love the EVF, MF Assist, electronic front curtain, multiple mount adaptability, smaller form factor and much lower cost. Also, some of my Nikkor lenses seem to have been outclassed by other lenses I've acquired (particularly Canon & Zeiss).

So now, at least to me, the D600 seems like it would be a step backwards. As much as I am still eager to ditch the crop factor, the benefits of the MILC have eclipsed that. Sorry, Nikon...

Anyone else in the same boat?
