Opinions on purchase: D700, D600, D7100


I'm wanting to go full frame, and I have several options - I'm looking for some opinions, and info on my options.


There are a couple of these for sale locally. Asking prices are good (compared to what I've seen on ebay, and the other forums) accessories included (extra batteries, grip) Shutter counts on one in the 50K's, don't have the info on the second (planning on hopefully inspecting it this weekend)


Leaning towards either a refurbished body, or a refurbished kit.


New purchase

The D700 and the D7100 are very close in price. The D600 refurb (body) will be about +/- $300 over the D700 and D7100

I shoot in clubs, theatres, auditoriums, etc with low (or bad) lighting. Usually no flash is allowed.

I'm looking for a body that will let me shoot higher ISO's (1600+) with improved noise versus the D7000

I initially was considering the D600, a fellow forum user suggested looking into the D700. I've read some threads praising the high ISO handling of the D700.

I've also read (forget where) that the D7100's high ISO noise handling is "close" to the D600's so, that's why the D7100 has made it to the short list.

I don't do prints, so the lower megapixels of the D700 vs the higher of the D7100 / D600 isn't going to be a big issue for me.

Comments, opinions, your .02 appreciated...
