Re: D90 user thinking about move to D600

Thanks for all your replies!  I'll respond below to some of them:


If the 24-85 VR is as good as the 16-85 VR then I would be very happy.  It's my favourite lens of all, not just for the focal range, but for the great IQ, colours and contrast it gives me.  However, from a lot of reviews (professional and consumer) it seems that the 24-85 doesn't have the equivalent performance on FX as the 16-85 has on DX

I guess the way forward is with higher MP cameras now...even on DX we're up to 24MP and the D7000 successor will surely have this as well.  Personally, I prefer lower MP.  I even considered a D700 but I think that would be a mistake in the long run.


I already have the AIS 24mm f2.8, 50mm f1.8 and 60mm f2.8.  I would probably get the 24-85 VR if it gave good results, partnered with the D600.  Definitely no heavy lenses for me!


That's two of you who have indicated it's a massive upgrade from the D90.  The relatively small size is one of the big plus points, as the D90 is the perfect size for me.

I just feel that to buy another DX camera would be a lateral (and not upwards) move.  Maybe I'm wrong - maybe DX is perfectly fine for my needs.  It's just that now with the price of the D600 coming down, it's really worth considering.
