| p.2 #5 · anyone gone from D700 to D600 and NOT regret it? |
Maybe I'm not in the majority, but I honestly no longer miss my D700. Of course, I guess I'm also in a different boat because my D600 is my 2nd-body and/or backup to a D3S, the role the D700 used to fill.
I kept both for a long period of time to make sure of my decision, but since parting with the D700 I haven't looked back. The D600 was far better in the areas where I wanted it to be... which was a lot more to do with image quality, and a "different" image-making option than what I had (more resolution, smaller body and weight, etc). The D600 was improved to a large extent in ways I wanted it to be.
Granted, if this was to be my primary body, I'd place a lot more emphasis on build and strength, and the D700 is definitely superior in this way.
I also want to ask the previous poster who said you have to do more menu-diving on the D600 than the D700... I really question if they've used it. The D600 has basically every option you have on the D700 externally, plus adds more controls, such as tweaking the autofocus system, that you had to dive into menus on the D700 for. The D600 does not bury controls IMHO. They're just DIFFERENT.
