Default D600 reviews

I was at the Nikon website trying to decide between D800 and D600. Although my heart is set on D800 the pocket book says to settle with D600. :-)

The reviews on the D600 on Nikon website talk a lot about "oil spots" and "dust spots" on the sensor. Is this "spot" issue a curable glitch on D600?

Thank you for any input on this topic.

From what I've read, the later production D600s don't have as much a problem with this. I personally have shot over 7000 photos with my D600 and haven't noticed any spots, though I haven't really been looking for them and clean my lenses and camera regularly. If you are shooting F16-22 in bright light you may or may not see spots depending on - being lucky - you got a 'good' one. I picked my D600 up at Best Buy and got the extended warranty - that includes damage from drops. I am out in the field, sports arenas, all kinds of weather etc. with mine.

I love my D600, best Nikon ever IMO. If you need 36 megapixels, get the D800.

P.S.: the only thing I don't like about the D600 is the camera strap.

The Nikon D800 is a fantastic camera, the DR of it is amazing and the big resolution, I had the chance to play for one afternoon with my friends camera and the body construction is very similar to the D300 and D700.

What I don't like about the D800 are the HUGE files, 36MP that I really don't need it.

I just bought last week a D600, it is a great camera, fast AF and the high ISO's and the DR are very similar to the D800

What I don't like about the D600 is the body construction very similar to the D7000 and the menu and functions, you have to go to the menu to change your settings.

I notice also the AF in low light conditions is very slow, the D300 and D700 is much faster and accurate in low light.
