it's official, nikon d800 now $2800 and d600 kit $2000(w 24-85)

(1/3) > >>

Northstar:
Ok...the d600 sales must be terrible to discount it this much this soon...D800 probably just a holiday thing.

Thoughts anybody?

Axilrod:
It was only $2100 to start with, it's only a $100 discount, doesn't seem to be an indicator of anything.  That $2699 msrp in that add is total overinflated BS to make it seem like a better deal.

sama:
The price of D600 includes a kit lens 24-85mm VR.

Yes...I think you missed it axil, it includes the $600 24-85 as a kit lens now...so a pretty big discount
 

weekendshooter:
It's a great sale if you want the kit 24-85 lens, but from my experience it's pretty awful unless you really don't have anything else to use. f/3.5-4.5 and insane distortion at every focal length. It's sharp in the center but never at the edges.

This is a temporary sale, NR reports that it's only active until the 19th.

IMO despite the strengths of these new sensors, neither the 600 nor the 800 really hits the mark that I and many others are looking for. The 800 is too slow and its files are too unwieldy, and the 600 is too plasticky for my tastes. I would love it if they dropped the D600 sensor into the D700 body; I love my 700 and consider it the gold standard for semi-pro bodies even after the release of the D800.
