  1. A slightly larger version than the D7000, to allow for the Larger LCD and sensor. I was hoping they would get rid of the Scene modes and U1 & U1 on the main dial. Flash Sync is too slow as is top shutter speed. I was hoping Nikon would produce an almost pro camera for us almost pro photogs..this in my humble opinion is not it. I'll stick with my D7000 for a bit longer and get some new glass like a 16-85 VR Lens if Nikon will ever ship them. Whats your take.

  2. I'm not keen on scene modes myself, I only use manual or aperture priority in any case. The U1 and U2 user modes are to be welcomed, Nikon should add them to their pro-models. They've been asked to do so for a long time. As for the top-shutter speed and flash-sync, it would of been nice to see but I don't think it's much of a handicap. I've yet to see it (I was invited to the UK launch, but I couldn't attend), but on paper I think it is a sound specification. My only concern is the price difference between the UK and US models. There's less between the D600 and D800 in the UK, making it a more difficult choice. I would choose the D800 every time but when the price settles there should be enough in price terms to make the D600 attractive. The big expense for people with APS-C cameras like the D300s and D7000 is moving from DX lenses to FX.
