Re: Upgrade from D300 for a poor college student?

I'm an about-to-be college student, and I'm switching to a D700 as we speak. However, I'd suggest that for your purposes at least, the D600 seems to be more useful. My editing workflows are rather simple and uni-directional, usually not requiring too much play in the file, if anything, a little bit of shadow recovery ability.

The D600 will have more resolution, which can be a blessing or a curse, depending on how large you would find yourself printing works out. I'm finding that the 24 MP of my Sony A850 are overkill for my purposes, printing my fine-art portraits only up to 16x24, thus I will be switching entirely over to a D700 based setup over the next few months.
