Default D600 - From in the bag to in the hand...

I picked up the D600 this morning. Niiiiiiiice...!!!

It's a very compact camera for what it is and is lighter than the D300, much lighter. I suppose to an extent the layout is typically Nikon. I mean, how different can they get from one to the next model? I am charging the battery right now and will have to spend a while sorting through the menus and make some adjustments after that so I suppose it will have to wait til tomorrow before I get in a few shots. I can wait. I'm not always a panic merchant. Don't want the excitement of the chase end too quickly...

I also bought a 24-120mm lens for it. Cost two-thirds the price of the D600 body, so I spent a whole heap of dollars today and I'll need to recover. Next comes the battery grip and another battery. None on the country just yet and I know how expensive they are but it's a necessity so I'll more or less have to get them. You can't go into this hobby blindfolded...

Hehehehe. I am wondering if I am the only one spending. In the hour or so I was in there I saw no money changing hands. I had other intentions for that wad of cash but ah well, win on one hand, lose on the other. At least this is a hobby that I can always carry forward without it dating too much, so the dollars of todays spendup can be justified over the next few years... Something like that...


Cheers...
