no, I wouldn't want to use crop mode either

why shoot a ff can in crop mode? Makes no sense to me. Just get a d7100 if you want a 24mp crop And save a ton of cash.

Exactly.

And for FF, not crop mode, it makes sense to get the D600/610 for the 24 mp resolution plus the extra DR.  For many if not most people, 24 mp FF is ideal, in terms of today's technology.

You do lose DR
I didn't believe it until I did my own test,

Many in the forum do not see the D600/610 as an option for FF users. It's tolerated with the Tar Brush description of 'entry level' as if it were a D3100,

The IQ (which is universally regarded as considerable) is rarely mentioned.

Not everyone wants a physically large camera body. I have had the relatively compact D300/700 and was pleased to have the smaller body option.

My 2 cents
