    New member of the family

    Hi all,
    Thanks to a great friend on the forum, I am now a new owner of a D600. Coming from the D300 I expect a difference. Especially ISO. With the D300 I tried to stay at ISO 800, and only when I had to pushed it to ISO 1600. I took some test shots with the D600 and was amazed. ISO 6400 looks better than my ISO 1600 on my D300. ISO 1600 looks clean. I am excited for this. The shutter is so much quieter. I like the feel of it. It is just getting use to the differences in the two. When I can I need to get a shorter lens as my only FX lenses starts at 70mm. But I do shoot mostly birds so the longer lenses I use the most. But I have wanted to get back into landscape photography. But it will have to wait a while. I look forward to being a part of this forum and a D600 user.

    I bought a D600 about 5 years ago to join my D7000 and noticed a difference on the first photo I took. FF rocks!

    I noticed a big enough difference between my former D600 and D7100 that the difference between it and your D300 should be far more apparent. The D600 is a great camera and should provide you with lots of enjoyment in the coming future! My D600 eventually became a D610, and I still use the D610 despite now having a D750 because the D610 really is that good! You will notice a big difference in noise at high ISO. Since I never used a D300, I can't say what other differences you will see, but congrats on a fantastic acquisition!

    Fun! Enjoy it. If I ever decide to get a FF, the D600/610 would make a lot of sense.

    Enjoy your D600
    I have the D610 and yes, it does let you push your ISO much further.
    I had a D90 and the D610 lets you go much further.

    It is a very capable camera.

    I am loving it. Just need better weather so I can really use it. I was hoping Scott trained it so my photos look better. I know I have big shoes to fill replacing him as the user of that camera.
