| p.2 #3 · What does D800 offer *you* that D600 doesn't? |
If I were going to buy now, I'd likely buy the d800. Most of my cameras have the pro feature sets and that is what I prefer, especially the AF module. I have a d7000, which is basically the DX version of the d600. It's a pretty nice camera, but I don't like the AF system as well as I like Nikon's pro AF, especially the frame coverage by the AF points.
Actually, I'd prefer the d600's 24mp sensor in the d800 body. In a way, I envy you. If I had some Canon lenses, I'd probably buy a 5dIII. It has the features and performance that I would love to have in a Nikon camera. Given that I have some of Nikon's best bodies, a ton of Nikon lenses, and that I've never owned a Canon, that is a statement that I'd never have thought I would say.
But, now there are a couple of rumors about a true d700 replacement body coming out late next year, which would likely be the camera that I would want. So, I'm going to sit back, watch how things shake out, and not buy anything.
