I've asked the pilot to switch the headlamps on, but it wasn't possible for some technical reasons.

I like this very much Georg. The flash really makes it.

Well, after arriving from my trip I took 4 days to read over 45 pages on this thread!

So many great conversations and images, I just will comment a tiny fraction in the next posts.

Just yesterday my new D600 arrived (bought by impulse that great priced promotional kit with a "garbage" AF lens, which I will put to sell soon) and now my trusty D3 is being sold.

Before Italy (need to process a huge amount of images) I am posting some of the first shots with the D600 + my beloved Nikki's daughter, another storm coming yesterday late afternoon:

5 vertical shots pano, 85mm f/1.8 K ai'd and CPU'd, f/5.6 at 1/60s, ISO 1600, window sill supported.
Jpges straight from the camera + slight PP.

I know it is too early, but generally I am impressed by this 24mp FX sensor; and I feel Nikki's daughter shines on it

Very nice Jose. Wonderful color, contrast, and detail.

Thank you Georg and Ron for the comments on the Kodak camera and model train images. The old Kodak is a very neat piece of equipment.

Hi gang, just catching up after being away for a few days.

Philippe, wonderful separation of your subject from the background with the 180mm.

Ray, the zoo shots are gorgeous, especially the Clouded Leopard.

Samy, really nice shots from the memorials. The composition of the one that includes the Washington monument is first rate.

Ronny, great shots of the boat and frozen lake.

Kevin, wonderful moon and tree composite.

Laura, really nice colors and textures in your "ode" series.

Reagan, beautiful orchid shots.

Rafael, the El Salvador photos are terrific.

Choung, great portrait of your daughter.

Jim T. I really like your Appalachian Trail shot. If there's such a thing as "tonal flow" you've got it going on there.

Leighton, really nice product shot.

Scott, I like both versions of the old Kodak.

Monty, really nice spontaneous portrait of Quinn.

Peter, the wet Knysna Turaco is a gorgeous shot. That "donut" bokeh in the other shot with the 500mm reflex is pretty wild.

Ron, super shot from Longwood gardens. When I was a kid growing up in Philly my parents used to drag me there. I should have appreciated it more.

Curtis, love the daffodils in the setting sun. Gorgeous bokeh.

Georg, great 'copter shot with the fill flash.

Jose, congrats on the new camera. Really nice vertical pano.

Say it ain't so Ray! Thinking of leaving the DX ranks. First Leighton, and now you are on the fence. You had cited some very good reasons a few days ago as to why the DX 7000/7100 make sense for your style of shooting. I have pondered some of the same issues. Good luck on your decision.
Scott

I am keeping the options open. The 1/4000 top speed on the D600 is a real issue with me It would almost eliminate my daytime shooting wide open. The reach is important as well. So my leaning is much more to the D7100 especially with the 24MP sensor. But like all major purchases I weigh all of the sides

Ray, keep in mind that the D600 can go down to 50 ISO L0.5 setting. In fact, it can go down to 42 ISO! They say it does this a loss of IQ, but I haven't noticed any. One more thing, I haven't had the 1/4000 top shutter speed keep me from any image yet simply for the reason I just mentioned.

Ray, I'm sure you've seen this but it's worth a 2nd glance http://snapsort.com/compare/Nikon-D600-vs-Nikon-D7100

Rafael - "Out of Africa" is appropriate. The homestead could be anywhere in sub tropical SA and points north where the farms haven't been ruined by ignorant "land reform" programs that have turned productive farms to slums.

Georg - great chopper

Jose - nice big pano. I hope you haven't abandoned the D7000 - we want to see DX vs FX crops side by side.

Jose - thanks for the comment on the Touraco and Owl (although I'd never post the owl without the bokeh issue)

Jeff - the Broken Hill series images are great and very well done on the WA. I liked it the moment I saw it.

Does the sun actually shine in the Shenandoah Valley?

And remember, Ray recently bought some FAST glass, so when he talks about shooting wide open he is definitely coming up against top shutter speeds. The D7100 has a base ISO of 100 and a top shutter speed of 1/8000th of a second, so it is ahead in this particular game. Removal of the anti-alias filter is interesting as well but DX will not likely find its way into my kit.

Thanks for your thorough comments on the choice Leighton. That was exactly what I expected. Well done.

Ray, weighing all sides means you will just have to buy at least the 400 5.6 for the D600 if you decide to go FX, so you can still frame your pet eagle about the same ;-)

Rafael,

Wonderful that you were able to reconnect with your childhood memories and highlights. That lake and surrounding topology sure looks like something large came crashing down there eons ago. Great use of the fisheye and the zoom. (Correction, just read up on the lake and its a volcanic crater, tells you how much I know about geology)

Ron, beautiful picture.

I wanted to share the trip to lake Coatepeque in El Salvador, this is a crater lake, very deep, not sure how large but large enough. the tallest mountain around it is the Santa Ana Volcano, about 9,000 feet, all the forests around are really coffee farms. My dad was a coffee farmer, we lived in the nearby town of Santa Ana and had a house on the lake where weekends were spent fishing, snorkeling, skying, the nights going by boat to our friends houses for parties and games. (We were kids free to roam, but it was
