    Is “Buit-in” and “Internal” the same thing (AF Motor)?

    • ashwins

      Yes. Otherwise for auto focus, the AF motor has to be in the lens (i.e., AF-S type lens).

        – The Nikon D600 will have built-in AF motor
        – Internal AF motor

        I was nitpicking the list. I don’t think the specs need to be padded on this baby.

  • Hmmm…. I have a D7000, feel like I bought the stop gap camera before Nikon could get this together.

    I was thinking of a D800 as my next camera but will the D600 fulfil my needs?

    Who is the D600 aimed at vs the D800?


    • FFS!!!!

      The D600 is the big brother to the D7000 and is aimed at keen enthusiast, amateur and semi pro shooters.

      The D800 is for rich keen enthusiasts, amateur, semi pro and Pro shooters.

      The D7000 is no stop gap camera, it is a semi pro DX camera and will be around (with updates) for a few years yet….


  • Rahul

    From the specs and the looks it seems like an FX version of the D7000 🙂

  • raavem

    Sounds good,
    will Nikon make this in a “retro style body? something like the mamiya 7??

  • peter

    Anybody if it will have timers for timelapse and cant do hi-speed sync..?? Or AFP i think it is in nikon terms?

  • Sounds tasty.

    • Richard

      It could find a lot of uses at the rumored price. Many amateur/enthusiasts would find this appealing and I could see any number of professionals using it as a second/third/fourth body.

      If this turns out to be a D7000 with an FX sensor, I don’t think that is all bad. I just hope Nikon enlarged the buffer.

  • It’s out!

    $2099.95 body only at Adorama.
