Of the 14,000 shots on my D600, probably are shooting Hs basketball of a nationally ranked team.

I get a lot of great shots, but lose a lot to OOF. I suspect the 51 pt AF on the D700 is more capable. But the sensor on the d600 is outstanding at iso 3200. I know a pro who thinks the sensor outperforms the D3s, but the AF is no where near as good.

But a girl running...yes if you practice and ave modern lenses.

Currently shooting aD300s, a D200, D70 and N50. Have a 'F.'
Also shooting with Konica 35mm SLRS (T3 and FT-1) with numerous Hexanon Lenses. Printer: Canon i9900.

I'm not picky with sensor performance, I'm probably one of the few photogs that will say I was happy with the Nikon 12mp DX sensors below ISO 1600. I think the 16mp sensor in the D7000 is usable to ISO 6400, if you get the exposure right in camera.

But hey it's 2014 and buying a 12mp sensor today kinda feels like a small step backwards. I really want the D600/610 to work for me so I can continue to use my SD cards. I gave away my remaining CF cards when I sold the S5.
