I am new to Nikon I have been an enthusiastic Photographer for 30 years or more, I love landscape photography and candid photography, just catching the moment and I am not too keen on flash photography.
I am very very pleased with my D 600 I started out with Minolta I really the liked the qualities of their lens, so progressed to a Sony A 700 with a CZ 16 85 which I really enjoyed.
The A 700 was coming to the end of life, so I changed to the A 77 I have never had so many spoiled photos, missed focus, lots of noise and more. With careful consideration I sold all my Sony kit and got the D 600 with the 24 – 85 kit lens which I am finding pretty good when stopped down, I also purchased a 50 1.8 and an 85 1.8 fantastic lenses.
It took me a little while to get used to the menu system and the where about of things, but now I am familiar with I love it. I have renewed confidence I can go out and just take pictures knowing the camera will do its stuff and the rest is down to me.
It is not too big and heavy I do some trekking hills and mountains and other walking and just hang it around my neck with no need to take it off for a rest.
I could go on an and on about its qualities, the picture quality is to me amazing, I always shoot raw mainly aperture priority and the detail it captures especially shadow detail is very impressive, I just love it.
I am also pleased I don’t have the dust problem I have carefully examined photos for dust, speck and blotches nut can’t see anything and I have had them with the Sony cameras as to be expected, but they have always cleaned.
Reading about some of the problems some are having with dust and specks, which I now understand is becoming less of a problem as the camera is used, it would not put me of buying the D 600
