Used D600 bodies are coming to market for about what a new/refurbished D7000 currently costs. After the whole "shutter-oil-gate" dust has settled, this still seems to me to be a heck of a FF camera, especially for a RAW (NEF) shooter like me. I don't see many posts about it nowadays, so I was wondering if this is still a good buy today, at least for one that had its original shutter already replaced by Nikon. All my DSLRs to date have been 24Mp DX and I've grown accustomed to what I can do with such a high resolution in post, but now I really want to use the full FOV of my old Ai and Ai-S lenses but I don't have the luxury to spend more than what I've paid for my previous DX bodies. Any thoughts from past and current D600 users and owners will be highly appreciated.
Either that or get it refurbished straight from Nikon.
It really is.. I would rate it as at least equal best with any Nikon sensor.
In most situations it handles very well. The only times I find it lacking a bit is in very low light with smaller aperture zooms. I have have had a chance to re-shoot in similar poor light situations but using Fast primes instead and it worked beautifully. However, with the same Zooms my D7200 had no issues that the D610 had trouble with. So there is that.... Tech advancements marches on..
Still D600/D610 are really underrated .. generally.
PS: the D750 prices are coming down too.. and the AF on that is very good. In many ways it has the best possible enhancements you would want to put into a D600/d610.
