On my way to work I did test D600 and 24-85 VR lens in the very cold morning (-20C air, -30C wind) - was working just fine - much better than human attached to the camera

Looks cold.

Honestly, I expect nothing less from the Nikon camera bodies. My Nikons have never had an issue in the cold. I've stood on the bank of the Colorado River when it was -11 f. for over three hours once with my camera sitting on a tripod. Only had to change a battery once in that time, and don't think I even needed to do that.

A few weeks ago somebody posted here about leaving Nikon because his camera would not function below 32 F. Of course, there was never any follow up to tell us the resolution.

I'm aat the age where functioning in weather extremes is not something I want to do. I went to a meeting last night and it was 5 degrees F when I got home. No way was I going out with the D800 to check cold weather performance. All my other Nikon gear works well in the cold. There is no reason the think the new D800 won't.

Very nice! I love seeing great shots with the kit lens, since for the time being I am going to be using it much of the time with my own D600.

I love the d600, but the mode dial is horrendous to use in cold weather. Much prefer Canon's or the D800 in that regard.

Other than that, the d600 is top notch! Just make sure you have the correct mode in before you jump out of the vehicle

Great photos!

Had my D800e out at Bryce last week. -20 air, windchill near -40, was out for an hour+ each time. It just kept right on working. Wish I could say the same for my hands

Nice shots.

But -20 below is to cold for my butt.

I was out earlier it was only -9 with windchill and the camera performed flawlessly. I had to put my gloves and hat on but wasn't too terrible

Guys---think a little bit here. Windchill has no effect on inanimate objects like cameras. Windchill is for pussies anyway. As for cameras working at -20C, I'm not impressed Why wouldn't they? I've been taking winter photos in the Dakotas and Minnesota for 20 years in temps a lot lower than that. I've had no problems, except a couple of times rolls of 35mm snapped in half. I typically stay out for 4-5 hours at a time, usually taking night photos.

So it is a great little camera that works in any cold (just like any other Nikon), and dirty spots on the sensor were easy to clean.
Good for travel light.

IMO, the D600 is the best bang for your buck DSLR.

Of couse, you're right - the camera doesn't feel the windchill temp.

However, I think the wind would cool the camera down to the ambiant air temp much faster the stronger it was blowing. So if it's -20 or something the camera's temp would drop much faster if there was a good wind vs steady conditions.

- and I've had film snap too - always sucks!

When I go out, usually at night, I'm out for three, four, five hours or longer at a stretch. It doesn't really matter how long it takes the camera to cool down. Ultimately, it's going to be at ambient temperature. Also, I usually set up out of the wind anyway.
