So Iím looking to buy my first full frame camera and seen locally some good deals on them with the shutter fix. Just looking for some peopleís thought on here. I pair it with a sigma 35 1.4 art to start.

Bought one used December 2014, I love it.
It is good enough that it makes the thought of spending $ to upgrade very difficult.

Outstanding sensor. Get one and shoot away.

if your budget allow it get D750 though, better AF ect.

I still use a D600 for grandkids, bar bands, and portraits.
The sensor is awesome with 35 f1.4A/24-105 f4 A/105 f1.4E
Got over 22K clicks since the "fix" (traded my D700 for it) GL

Oil splats sucked but it's a great sensor. Some of my best shots of my kids came from that combo.

If I had a complaint it would be that the AF isn't the greatest in low light.

D600 is as good as the price you pay. Anymore, d800 prices have bottomed out and are a better value IMO.

For the right price though, D600 is a solid camera.

The D600 is a fine camera as long as you get one without the oil issue.

Sold my D800 to move to a D750. Found a D600 for cheap locally and thought Iíd use it till I find a D750 but 4 months later I still have the D600 and no desire to move to a D750 at the moment. Itís a great camera. Go for it.

Best value is to get one without the shutter fix applied. With any luck you'll find one with oil spots and you can negotiate the price down even further. Take it to the local Nikon service center, get it fixed for free. With any luck you'll have oil again even after the fix and they'll give you a new D610. That's what I did.

Sold my D610 a couple months ago, but now I'm regretting it. Loved the sensor, super clean high ISO, and overall colors from it more than the D800e that replaced it. Might get another D600 if they drop any more (locally I see them for around $800)

I donít think you mentioned what DX body you were shooting with. In my experience, the D600 is basically a full frame D7000. Handled the exact same way. I shot the D7000 for 2 years, then moved to the D600. Great camera. And although I moved to the D750, I would not hesitate to get a D600 at all (if it had the fix already).

I have no gear right no even though my sig says so. I use to shoot a d7000 with a 70-200 be 17-552.8. 35 1.8 g. But now hoping to buy a D600 with grip and 35 1.4 art for first glass.

Did you like the overall handling of the D7000? Or do you want a more ďproĒ feeling body?

I want to make sure you know what you are getting into. While it is a full frame, and is a lovely camera, some people mistakenly think that because it is FF it automatically will be much more professional feeling than the D7000 series body. Some people are happy with the D7000 and that is a positive (less weight and soze) but some people are disappointed because they expected a more ďsubstantialĒ feeling body with the D600.

My D600 was oily bad and they never could fix it. D610 replacement was great. I see people asking the same price of a D600 as a D800 it seems in the market. For that I would take the D800.
