    Talked out of a D600

    So I took a trip to Seattle today to hit up a good camera shop (Glazer's). Anyways I was almost going to trade my 7100 and 17-50 Tamron for a D600 and the guy at the shop talked me out of it believe it or not. He said since I am planning on upgrading in January to a D810 that I should wait for that as the 7100 is a better camera then the 600. He said that I would be going from a semi pro grade build quality and focusing to a lesser build quality (magnesium vs composite) and no weather sealing on the 600, plus a worse focusing system. Maybe if it was a 610 I would have, but he didn't seem like a fan of the 600. Anyways so I ended up with a 50mm 1.8g and a Sigma 50-150 2.8, the Sigma was used and I got a good deal on it. I also got to check out the Tamron 70-200 2.8 vs. the Nikon, and damn that Tamron is a good lens. I fully feel that the build quality is defiantly good enough and it will probably be my next buy. Anyways, just thought you guys would find it amusing that a store would talk someone out of a sale.

    The 7100 is newer than the 600, but you can't compare and there is weather sealing on the 600. Nothing like the Pro bodies. But he is right that you should wait if you are planning on upgrading the 810.

    I can't imagine anyone wanting to actually buy a D600. You're just tempting fate. Dunno that I would even take it if someone offered to give me one for free.

    I still have mine and am not thinking about upgrading. It gives me enough for my needs.

    I'm a little upset of the re-sale value though but it will prevent me from spending for nothing.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying it's a bad camera. If you have one that works properly, that's half the battle.

    Knowing about all of the issues with the D600 though, dunno that I'd want to roll the dice on buying one now.

    I love this about the D600 and its issues lol, I think I will do a comparison shoot with my D600 and D800E and see the difference and see if it is really as bad as people think :P

    Lol. I wouldn't have gone that route. Both the D600 and D7100 have magnesium alloy top and rear covers, and both offer weather sealing. I believe the D600 has a slightly better sensor but I'm not sure about comparisons between the focusing systems. My D600's focusing worked well in low light as well as at all other times, too. The D7100 lacks the low pass filter making the images nice and sharp. Other than the shutter problem on the D600 which Nikon is now addressing, the camera is a terrific body.

    If you are considering a D810, I'd stick with FX lenses. I've heard good things about the Tamron 70-200mm.

    Ya he did, because it was what I needed and could afford. Plus I can probably get 90% or better of my money back when I do sell for what I paid for it. Jeesh not everybody can afford a 24-70 2.8.
