This Is Part Of The Problem...But Who Do You Really Blame...

It's a competitive electronics world with a rapid fire replacement cycle. Hardly a good environment for proven products making it to the shelf.

Here is the rub.  Even if the D600 was problem-free, if Canon came out with a 6D Mark II later this year that had better specs than the D600, I can guarantee you D600 users would whine about feeling neglected by Nikon, we would see posts like "Come On Nikon...", etc.  Then, when Nikon leapfrogs Canon, the Canon forums would light up similarly and the cycle continues, as it has for the past 10-12 years.  We all want the latest and greatest and too many consumers get bored with a product that is barely a year old, if even that.  If Nikon and Canon took the time to bring proven products to the shelf, these forums would be full of people complaining that Nikon and Canon are dragging their heels as they are chomping at the bit to replace their 18 month-old camera with something newer and shinier.  In some ways, the consumer is only getting what he deserves...
