Re: Sorry. I used both and I'm just saying what I experienced.

Did you use the d600 Af with the 9 point dynamic mode ? Can you make a true comparison based on experience ?


Yes I can. I have owned D300 / D300s/ D7000/D600/D700/D3S/D800/D800e/D4 Nothing touches the D3S and D4 for action. What the hell do you think you're getting for $7000 out the door if you're not getting something extra in AF?? You're getting the fastest, most consistent AF that Nikon makes. It's not the sensor - they can put that into a $2700 DF and it's certainly not the little bit of extra cost for the full magnesium frame. It's stupid really to suggest that the 39 pt D600 AF equals the 51 pt D4 AF. No offense. Well not much.
