Good, but nothing special
3

So, where do I begin with the D600?  Let's start with the pros of it.  Solid lowlight performance, decent fps, good weather sealing, dual card slots, it's small, and on the used market can be found for 400 bucks all day long.  However, it's a bit of a stepdown from the D800.  I regret buying my D600 over a D800.  Its grip is not that deep and comfortable, and the casing feels rather plasticky.  The autofocus absolutely sucks, especially in lowlight situations.  The colors are not anything to write home about, and the lowlight performance can't keep up with the Df.  Its buffer is rather shallow, and the camera doesn't have as many physical controls as a pro body.  Nothing special about the D600 aside from the very low price
