Could you elaborate?  I thought both had the same viewfinder: 100% coverage, 0.7x magnification.  Why is it a plus for D800 and a minus for D600?


Hi Ajit, After trying both D600 and D800 in Nikon showroom, I have a feeling that the circular viewfinder on D800 is brighter and the same unit is used on the pro level Dslr like D3/4.  It is even better to be fitted with the Nikon circular eyecup which effectively block the strike lighting and help you concentrate on your subject and composition.

I would strongly recommend you to try both out at your nearby Nikon and make your own judgement.
