Yay, finally got my roll back

This is taken in my hometown, a lil' town called Ipoh in Malaysia; at the dingy and dimly lit wet market (thought it was perfect, taking over Dean's duties heh heh)
I haven't been here for at least ten years and it hasn't changed nary a bit - just like I remembered it when I was

Thanks for this one Chin, I'd love to see more from this place.

More rainy day work. The beginnings of a TC-16A modification. Now anyone can do this right? I have an idea before this is over the answer to that question will be no. There is a couple tutorial's out on the web. The pictures are all blowups of the parts. That is the problem you do not realize actual size. A hole is drilled and the pin is moved into the new hole. A wire has to be soldered onto one of the springs and then onto the printed circuit board and then reassemble it. Judge for yourself if you want to try it. At least I was smart enough to follow advice and take it apart inside a tupperware container. 28-2.8 AI-S

Mark, Scott - thanks, it's a 28 2.8 (29??)

Leighton - thanks. It isn't my better half. Ingrid is a woman

Ronny - stop it! I'm either going to have to get a new lens or a dog!!

Ron - I wish you'd stop already! This reminds me of my first attempt at fixing a Westclox alarm at age 10. Not a good result. What do you do with the left over parts??

Well I just took the plunge and ordered a D600. I am also keeping my D7000 so I have the best of both worlds. I know that's selfish of me but I miss having a back up camera. I love the DX format but I can't wait to try FX for the first time. With Canon I had the 1.3 crop but it just isn't the same as full frame. Leighton says the view finder on FX won him over so we will see. Thanks to everyone for your input. I couldn't decide so now I will have both

You made a wise choice Ray. That viewfinder is gonna blow your mind. Can't wait to see what you do with it!

Great news Ray! I'd happily hoist one with you but my arms are too short...

I fully expect we'll get a detailed report of your experience once you've had a bit of time with your new camera. Thus far, apart from criticisms about oil and dust, folks have been very happy with the performance of this camera. As I said in my PM to you, this is definitely the sensor I was hoping would end up in the D700 replacement. But obviously, Nikon had other plans and we ended up with both a D800 with its uber sensor and the smaller D600 I expect was positioned to do precisely this... entice users of the D7000 to try out FX. The form factor will doubtless work perfectly for you. Going from the D700 the D600 felt a bit small. I need a heavier camera so I can hand hold those longer lenses...

My bet is you'll love this camera and that we'll be entertained with some wonderful photos taken with it. Well done Ray!

Best of both worlds. I think if your D7000 is one of the early ones, you shouldn't have a problem dealing with the oil and dust that some of the D600's have. I know my D7000 was very bad with oil on the sensor until it was cleaned by Nikon.
