Re: D600 is more camera than most really need (difference between need and want)

Magnesium front plate - i don't think many people will be hanging any HUGE lenses off their D800 nor subjecting the body to a lot of "professional" physical abuse.

Non issue for most who don't shoot in roughest of the conditions.

Oh lordy! Say that when your heavy lens disengages from the front of your body after tearing the mount out.... Used to work as one of the guys taking in repairs at a major pro camera shop...  saw it too often.

Rule one - Metal chassis always!

Rule two - a slightly shorter neck strap rigged to the lens so the lens takes its own weight - jury rig if necessary - even when following Rule One.

Just because almost all new cameras are now essentially disposable, both rules still apply.
