My take on upgrading from D7000 to D600

I upgraded in October,...

with my first D600.

Then after using it all day at a wedding and seeing the results after I processed in LR,

I ordered another from B&H 1 week later.

It is lighter

I feel the white balance is more acurate.

I like the larger LCD (3.2 inch compared to 3 inch)

I like the louder focus lock beap.

I like the high ISO clean images

I like being able to have 2 cards, 1 as a backup


Yes some feel the D700( I had 3) is more robust, better QC, and at 12 MP just as good for events.

The biggest deciding factor for me was the way the images looked after I processed in Light Room.

That is my biggest deciding factor and what won me over.

I Ebayed 2 of the D700 bodies, I kept 1.

Now the D600 bodies go out the door with me every weekend to work.

I have had no dust, no oil, no breakdowns.
