Re: Interesting

I've read many reviews so far which express major disappointment that Canon's 24-70 II doesn't deliver on its price tag and is only just reaching resolution and sharpness of Nikon's five year old 24-70.... Start at and the search on the net. I personally wouldn't touch either lens because I think zooms are a massive compromise on quality, this latest lens is still no match for any top quality prime.

It is cheaper and better.

Also Nikon's fix lenses (G-serie) are much better than Canon's 50 and 85mm dinosaurs.
Nikon's 24-70 is not as good as Canon 24-70 mk2, but waaay cheaper.
(But personally I will buy Tamron 24-70 IS.)

Before freaking out on me Canon forum users, please understand that I am hoping to get opinions from both sides before spending a small fortune on a body and lenses.

To start, i only talk about the D600 cause I am not looking for 36MP. Its just way too much for me to handle and I am not the best at using photoshop.

I mostly shoot people and landscapes. Lenses I would buy are the 24-70mm and the 50mm. Will pick up an 85mm around the holidays.

Any first-hand opinions would be most appreciated. Thank you!
