I think this'll make a fine upgrade to my 5D Mk I, considering most of the lenses I've used in the past few years are AI(-s). I'm looking forward to getting more into video production with this as well. The price is a little steeper than most anticipated, but it's not horrible. Brand new at 2100USD is what I paid for my 5D just before the Mk II came out.

I've pre-ordered, so we'll see if I get one anytime soon...

Happiness is a loaded camera.

Re: Nikon D600

Well, applaud to Nikon, for mixing in the D800 and the D7000 and a new sensor and giving us this. Recently I've been working  a lot with the Nikon D800 / D800E and there's loads of thing to like about them, though the hugh file size is perhaps not one. And the frisky with lens. I would think the 24MP sensor on the D600 would be altogether more user friendly while still delivering plenty. I wonder how the latitude and high ISO result would be like from this new FF sensor, seeing what Sony had been able to do with their other new offerings.

Re: Nikon D600

Well I got mine a few days ago. I'm really liking it so far.

One of the first shots out of my new D600. This was from an in camera JPEG. I've added some falloff, did a curve adjustment, and did the BW conversion in Photoshop.

ISO2000 on this is roughly similar to about ISO640 or 800 on my 5D Mk I. That's comparing in-camera JPEGs from the D600 with LR 4.1 processed RAWs from the 5D.

Major pluses thus far:
» Open aperture metering with AIS lenses—of which I have 4
» Focus confirmation with manual focus lenses
» Dedicated shooting mode dial
» Storable non-cpu lens IDs
» Far more accurate metering than the 5D with manual glass
» Assignable function buttons on the front
» It displays more information in the viewfinder
» Lots more custom options. Lots and lots.

Taken with the Nikkor 35mm ƒ/2 AIS, ƒ/4 at ISO2000.
