| p.1 #17 · What a dumb ass. Talking about myself. |
Just to be clear, you sold your D700 and bought a D600 and D800... I understand why your wife may be upset.
You need to ask yourself, what do you need from the D600 (and D800) that the D700 didn't give you? The D600 and D800 are great cameras but so was the D700. Bottom line, if they give you something you need then you made the right decision.
As far as the D800 AF goes, have you fine tuned your lenses? My D800 made three trips to Nikon as well but now all focus points are perfect. You should expect nothing less.
I asked myself that question and I cannot see a single reason to get D600 over my D700 but I can't seem to stop myself from doing it. So I decided to keep both but my wife raised hell. Like a dumb ass I sold the D700 without even trying the D600.
You made a great decision! The D600 will give you the exact same sensor performance as the D800 minus some resolution. The D700 for as great as it is, and I loved mine to death, is not as good as the D800 or D600 when it comes to DR and High ISO performance. With your doing weddings and portraits I think you said, you will love the extra DR and the even better low light performance. Not to mention the increased resolution. Even with the D600 you will be able to crop much more than you could with the D700.
You made a great choice! And I know because I just ordered the D600 kit the other day to compliment my D800 too... So if that makes you a Dumb xxx, then that makes me one too...
