The D700 is a great camera I moved up to one from a D300s and going FX was the difference or I should say the IQ I have been searching for in a DSLR.

I sold my D700 for $1800 with 4,000 activations on it last week to get the D600, I was so nervous waiting for the D600 to arrive, wondering if I had done the right thing as I haven't even seen one or use one in a shop .

But it arrived from Hong Kong this week and I'm really impressed with it the IQ, White Balance and Exposure they are spot on and the detail I can abstract from the shadow areas is amazing. One main reason for going to the D600 and the 24MP sensor was to give me the option to crop tighter without any loss in IQ .

I was a bit shocked with the weight of the D600 compared to the D700 but after a few days I don't really notice much difference now.

I loved my D700 but this D600 to me is a big improvement.

Oh my, buyer's remorse is rearing it's ugly head. I'm wondering if I should have not been so quick to dismiss the D600 over the ergonomics. What were your complaints about the D700 that you find improved in the D600? I hate second guessing myself.
