p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · What a dumb ass. Talking about myself.


I just sold my beloved D700 with battery grip and D3 battery for higher fps. I have not seen nor touched D600.

I have no plans on selling my D700 but my wife has been raising hell ever since I ordered the D600. The reason I ordered D600 was because my D800 came back from Nikon service center for the third time and I think they have finally fixed the AF issues after 6 months of back and forth with them. Once I saw what D800 is capable of delivering I decided to add D600 to compliment it.

Someone please console me. Tell me I did the right thing. I don't ever shoot sport. I mainly shoot wedding and portrait. Sometimes I shoot runway fashion for a local magazine.

A quick test of my D800 with Sb910 flash. Before the fix, these types of point and shoot images will be out of focus including the center point. Now the extreme outer focus points are nowhere near as sharp as the center point but I can live with that.

I have a D4 & D800 - and I will not sell my D700 - 12mp are just perfect at times.

I'm sorry but all I could infer from your post that you have a D700, fixed D800 and a D600 on the way. Where's the problem?!

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.

Yes I have no plans on selling my D700 until my wife started making a big deal about the purchase of D600. So I have to keep peace in the house and put my D700 up for sale. Now that it is sold I feel like I made a big mistake. What is so confusing about it.

I sold D700 to keep D600.

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.

If it was me I would have rented a D600 for a week before I sold a camera that I truly loved. Then you could have made a better decision.

The D600 is a very capable camera and it's ISO performance, DR and IQ is much better than the D700. That said, you will miss the build, controls and AF system but you already have a D800. Since you have a D800 then it makes sense to have a D600 as a back up for light weight sessions.

Good luck with the wife

It's your grammar that confused people; it should read "I had no plans" not "have no plans"; all makes sense if you read have as had.

That would have been a smart thing to do but because of the D600 deal ending on 29th I had to make a move. I waited until the last day to order D600. I tried talking myself out of doing it but at the end I succumbed.

My high-school running coach had a simple saying: "You play... you pay."

Don't do anything where you can't afford the consequences, in any sense of the word. Know where your limits are. Then, do the right thing. That is sometimes buying a new camera. More often, it's not.

Now, forget the past... including five minutes ago. From this point forward, what's the best decision: keep the D600, or return it and get a cheaper camera, or what?

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...

Ditch the nagging wife. That's the only problem.
