a very subjective issue

But I have to ask.

I am on the fence between buying a D600 and a D800 coming from a D90. I am a bit concerned about the massive file sizes from the 800 and wonder if I really need 36 mp so the 600 has somewhat more appeal.

HOWEVER ..and here is the point, I am struck by one thing that I may in fact be way wrong in. Is it me or is it the opinion of others as well that D800 shots seem to, on average, appear more ( here we go into subjective land) pleasing. There seems to be  a richness to them that vaults them slightly above anything I have seen from the 600 at least in the postings in here. Am I wrong or do others see this difference?

Just wondering what others have to say on this perceptual deal...and yes ..please hold your nasty fire ye mean ole trolls
