p.1 #1 · Difficult choice.


A non pro friend of mine, a client offer him a D7000 + 24-70 2.8 for his 4000 shots Nikon D600. He ask me what to do. Itīs not easy. He has the 24 2.8,50 1.8 and the 35-70 2.8. He will lose the full frame but he will keep the 24 70 instead of all of the other ones. Recommendations?

Thanks

The D7000 and 24-70mm 2.8G together are worth more than the D600, if I'm not mistaken.

And this post by you helps the OP how?

And how exactly is the OP asking for advice a wasted post?

Sorry dude, but you are the one wasting posts. Next time try to be helpful.

Could probably do the trade and sell the rest of his glass and the D7000 for a D700...

To the OP, I could look at this a number of ways.

If you were talking new, it would be a great deal, but used ... no way IMO. The D7000 is not the latest generation and likely has a lot more wear on it than your firiends 4000 click D600.

For sure, things to consider
-- how many clicks on the D7000? What shape is the D7000 in?
-- What shape is the 24-70 in?

Also to be considered. The D7000 is a DX body yet the OP's glass is set up nicely for FX. The 24-70 is not a great range on DX, but is wonderful on FX. I suppose he could sell off all the other glass and the D7000 to partially fund a new D600 (but I would keep the 50 f/1.8).

The other option is for your friend to keep his D600, sell what he has for lenses and save money for the 24-70 and get the warrantee to boot. This is the route I would take. Patience in saving money for something is usually rewarded. In the mean time, he has a good kit.

Yeah, my concern is the move from FX to DX... his lenses are great for, and are set up for FX... What would be his incentive for taking the deal? if he WANTS to go DX, sure, why not... otherwise, why
And like Andre said, the 24-70 isn't a great range on a DX body.

Personally, I wouldn't do it. Well, unless the D600 is an extra body, and I needed something lighter weight for travel, then I may consider.

Thanks everybody for the advise.
Mazerunner, around here the price is pretty much the same. The D600 he has is new, I donīt exactly know how many shots does the D7000.
Berschwinger, itīs not a bad idea because he could use the 24.70 on a full frame.
Andre, you are right, he could try to sell everything and buy the 24 70 to use it on the d600. I īll ask him about the d7000 and in which shape are both things.
Chestnut, he believes he doesnīt take advantage of a D600 body,he knows he will downgrade the body but he will have an amazing lens for the future and a great body meanwhile, selling the other lenses.
Thanks again for the advise.

Psst.... it is wasted not waisted.

In 5 year's time the lens will still be worth to close to its original price while the D600 will be worth pittance. You have my answer.

In 5 years time the 24-70 will be replaced by the 24-70 VR and worth half it's price and the D7000 will be less than a pittance also. I'd rather have the D600 and it's sensor today.

Cameras lose value SO fast; lenses keep their value well.

I agree, although I would spell it differently...

If the OP's friend really has to ask a question like this, it likely doesn't matter what camera ha has...
