This camera’ is so good, we’d even say that a lot of people who would otherwise shell out for the D800 or EOS 5D Mark III could consider the D600 instead. It’s really more than just a scaled-down professional camera for amateurs. This is a different tool altogether. It’s a leaner, more efficient DSLR. And that’s exactly what most people need.
Compared to the D800, the D600 is noticeably lighter, which will make a difference during a long day’s shooting.

We can’t wait to start shooting with it and hope to share some images with you very shortly.
