Re: wide angle DSLR shots looking like P&S images.

I guess you associate 'huge DoF' with P&S.

It is true that with tiny sensors, DoF is usually very large, and that's why low DoF shots are quite popular: they look "professional" because until recently, only big cameras could produce this "effect". And it looks like this is what you're after.

You should try a longer lens, like a 50mm f/1.8. The DoF will be much smaller on your D600, and it won't look like a P&S.

But even with huge DoF, photos from cameras like the D600 & D800 look nothing like P&S to me. The dynamic range and the noise handling in low light is not even comparable. But if you don't see it, why not get back to P&S ?
