Ronny, these of Nitro are good, but the one with the Zeiss is fantastic!

My new D600 came yesterday about 15 min before I had to leave for work, so I had to wait until today to give this bad boy a work out. My first observation was that compared to the D7000 it felt more substantial. Weight wasn't that much more but it does feels thicker and the grip more sculpted. After a day of using the camera I was impressed at the viewfinder. It was so nice to see the focus instead of relying on the green dot. I can't believe how wide my 24mm really is, not to mention the 16mm 3.5. It is sorta like having a whole new set of lenses because they all behave so differently. I used the 16mm, 24mm, 35mm, 85mm and the 300mm and I was most impressed by the 16mm 3.5. Here are a few of the photos I took today using that beautiful fish eye.

Congrats Ray! Beautiful set to start the journey with. That was my first thought when I got mine, wow, what a viewfinder. And it really is like having a whole new bag of lenses. keep them coming, you're gonna love this camera.

Ray, a big from my side. Love that first shot. I'm sure you will have a lot of fun with other MF-Nikkor's too.

Thanks guys. Most photos required very little in the way of post work. BTW these photo's were taken at Holis Gardens in Lakeland, Florida

Fantastic images! Wish I could afford a D600...

Awesome Kevin! Wish we had some blue skies around here to use the 16/3.5 with . . . been drab and dreary for a couple of weeks now.

Those are Ray's shots John...

And they are lovely... taken with his new D600.

I grabbed this yesterday with the 135 f/2 AI-s, wide open... the laughing Buddha hanging from my mirror.

Sorry - I'm on the road with my laptop and didn't follow the original post! Great images Ray!

I'm sure you will someday take great 16/3.5 images too Kevin when you get that D600 and a 16/3.5 . . .

Ronny, absolutely awesome jump-shot of Nitro over at the Zeiss-thread! But your pictures taken with MF-Nikkors are brilliant too - love especially the first one taken with the 180/2.8.

Reagan, very nice B&W from the railroad tracks!

Tony, cool close-ups taken with Nikki! Personal fav is the Ink-knife for it's "flowing colors" (sorry, don't have better words for it).

James, excellent high-key-portrait. I really like the posture and the perfect post-processing.

Daylight savings time = light after work
Nice light + sky = opportunity
Overcoming laziness and getting out with my MF Nikkors = picture to share

Thank you Georg, John, Curtis and Kevin. Thoroughly enjoyed using the D600.
Kevin you can't be a serious member here unless you have purchased a lens from John. I bought my 24mm 2.8 AIS from John 2 years ago and can I say I didn't really know how good a lens that it was until today. That lens really shines on the D600!

Georg, the love lock picture is cool.

James, awesome high key portrait.

Reagan, I like the third rail shot a lot, esp after the slight angle tweak.

Ray, awesome work with the 16 f3.5! The way you are framing stuff you'd think you were an old hand at FE shots.

Ray
