whether I am crazy or not.

Generally my favorite types of pictures taken are landscape and nature. I have shot a few concerts and did enjoy that also.

Right now, I own a D7000,
Nikon 35mm f1.8
Nikon 24-70 f2.8
Tokina 11-16 f2.8
Nikon 70-300 VR
Nikon 18-85 VR
Tamron 17-50 f/2.8

I am considering selling all except the Nikon 70-300 VR and the Nikon 24-70 f/2.8 and getting the D600. I know this is just another in a long list of threads asking basically the same question. I like the feel of the D600 very much. I have not problems at all with my D7000, but am thinking that I may want to go FF

Thanks for any input!!

Ron

I'd do it, for landscapes and portraits the 24-70 is spectacular one an FX body.

Nothing you have is irreplaceable.

I'd rent one, but whatever. You'll probably talk yourself into it anyway. NAS is insidious...

Nikon Aquisition Syndrome. It's a horrible thing to go through.

There's actually something worse than that, NMFAS.

To the OP, I have recently purchased the D600 after using the D7000 for two years. All I'll tell you is that I'm glad I did. Don't get me wrong, the D7000 is a GREAT camera. But I am finding that I like FF better.

Just my 2 cents.

You're not crazy.

The D600, 24-70 and 70-300 would be one hell of a great kit.

Do it.

I honestly doubt you'll see much difference, and will go from having a $1,000 camera that rapidly loses value to a $2,000 camera that rapidly loses value. Save the $2000 and it on something that will guarantee you you'll get fantastic photos that will wow even your non-photo friends: a round trip ticket to Iceland.

What I've found over the years is a change in camera bodies has the LEAST effect on the quality of my photography. No one you show photos to will see any difference.

You'll be going from an FX equivalent range of 16-450mm, with a fast prime, a nice walkaround lens and some redundancy, to a 24-300mm 2 lens kit with no flexibility and no backups. I don't think the new body will gain you nearly enough to make up for everything you're losing.

I have not made a lot of $$ yet, but I have sold a few landscapes.

I know that I would be loosing some lenses, but think that what I would be left with would be very nice. I would add more lenses as I could afford it.

I do appreciate your input all!!

Thanks, Ron

It's even worse than Kent describes it.

I could have sold my D7k in January for $1,100. Now it's on C/L where I'm ASKING $850 to help fund buying a used D3s whose owner paid $5,200 + tax for it & is now selling it for $3k to $4,200.

As for my two D700 which I bought for $2,700 + tax each... I'm guessing they're each worth $1,700 now.

I have read on a few occasions already that the 70-300 Nikon lens was a but of a disappointment on a D800. Whether this is valid for the D600 I don't know.

one thing you need to consider for the 70-300 is the cost, its extremely cheap for the quality it delivers and the focal length it covers.

How is that relevant? One needn't earn a dime from a creative pursuit in order to be rewarded by it.

If a paparazzo can own camera equipment, anybody can own camera equipment.

I did it though my D300 was great for my needs. I sold the Tokina 11-16, Nikon 17-55, Nikon 35 1.8, Nikon D300 and kept the 80-200 2.8. I bought a D700, Nikon 28-105, Nikon 50 1.8D and still don't know how to replace the Tokina 11-16! Options are Sigma 12-24, Rokinon 14 or Tokina 16-35. Nikons are out of the question. Switching to FX actually left me with cash but I replacing the 17-55 will be costy.

Since I did it then I can't recommend otherwise You have a great FX lens (24-70) and a decent telephoto (70-300). Buying the D600 after selling your other lenses will cost you virtually nothing and you only need to compensate for missing the 11-16.

Good luck!

If you make money from it and do not have backup gear then your screwed when it breaks. That's what I am getting at. So it is very relevant.

No kidding, anyone can own camera equipment. But hey, if you want to go out with 2 lenses and 1 camera and do work for a client, then go for it. Then when your stuff breaks and you can't get the shot you will then understand the importance of redundancy.
