It isn't necessarily a bad thing to have less features

The cheap 135 format bodies are cheap because they lack features. If you don't require those features, then obviously they are a better buy than the higher-priced full-featured alternatives.

I'm curious as to what features exactly you consider are lacking on say a D600 though?

I can only think of a couple of things, and its not like potential deal breakers like the omission of bracketing on the lowest of the APSc bodies.

I'm not saying that the D600 (or 6D) lack important features, necessarily. If the D800 offers you nothing over a D600 then why would you buy it? Also, it may be a good option to save money if you want a back-up body -- so I am not saying that having such options is a bad thing.

It is pretty obvious, however, that Nikon and Canon have divided this sub-flagship range deliberately by features.


US$1900 for the D600 vs. US$2800 for the D800; US$2300 for the 6D vs. US$3500 for the 5D III.  So quite a big price difference.
