I upgraded from a d7000 to a d600 and the first thing I do is compare image quality.
Everything looks good with the d7000 and the 24-70 but on the d600 the images do not look good.
I thought it was the d600 and after pulling my hair by trying different things I tried a different lens.
With the 24-85 kit lens the images look normal.
I have no idea why the images look good with the d7000 and 24-70 but with the d600 and 24-70 the problem persist.
Exposure compensation of -1.7 seems to be the spot and adjusting in the raw file in LR makes it better.
How can I fix this or is there a issue with the setup?

Comparing the same camera and lens with a display model at best buy the photos look 99% the same and the histogram is comparable a well with a few differences. I couldn't compare a 24-70 because no local shops have it in inventory.

The raw and and jpg are yellow and over exposed if that matters.

    On your flickr site you tell the white balance is set to incandescent. I think, you're not used to the camera and should grab the manual and some time to read a bit. The difference is not very big and I'm sure the problem was behind the camera. None of the pics was in focus, the sizes difference is 1.9MB to 4.5MB while the smaller one doesn't have any EXIF in it. Sorry, my crystal ball is in holidays, I can't recognize what you did. And "do not look good" goes for both pics. Why can't you use a gray card?

    personally from what you labeled on your flickr, I think the D600 looks much better and the D7k has the yellow /green cast.

    THere are multiple "incandescent" settings on my D800 - I think it is the same with both the D7k and D600. You might check to see if you have them on the same setting.

    I couldn't really see much difference. Might be you choice of shooting to compare. I didn't see either as problematic with a tint or whatever either way. I also don't know your processing and everything you did.

    On D7k are 6 A and 6 b settings, once you choose the white balance - in each light symbol. But as well as Jzpunltd didn't tell the light situation before, he possibly might believe that were the same settings - I just don't think, he could tell after 160 shots with D600...

    I think I would reset the camera, use auto WB and shoot some photos outside in daylight. It appears operator error may be entering in and the best way is to start over.
