Hi all,

I'm currently equiped with a great D7100 that I really enjoy daily.

I have the opportunity to sell it and get a second-hand D600 by adding $140 "only".

The main reasons I'm willing to make the switch are:

- I just have 2 prime lens today, a Nikon 35mm f/1.8 DX and a Nikon 85mm f/1.8 G FX. Since I plan to bought more lenses I have the feeling it will be a better move to invest directly in FX ones instead of changing them all when I will make the switch to FX.

- My main photography activities are indoor shots (parties with friends, family meeting, new born babies, etc.) and I know that the better ISO of D600 will be a powerfull benefits for that usage.

Do you think it would be a good move? Should I'll wait for the next FX generation (I kind of lack the D7100 AF system on the D600).

Thank you for your smart advise.


For what you shoot I won't even think twice about it. I own D800 and D7100 and used to own D600. ISO alone is enough to switch. I enjoy shooting with my D7100 but I can't imagine having it as my main body if I shoot mostly indoors.

D7100 is too noisy for me but it wins on AF but D600 is no slouch.
