I seems to me that there are several anti Canon/pro Nikon threads - and it is always the same group of suspects whinging and whining

And of course there are always the Canon apologists.
No matter what Canon does (and how overpriced it is), it's always good.

I never understood the mentality of an apologist, btw.
What is it that drives an individual to defend the profit-driven decisions/actions of a profit-driven corporation ??? ?

Me? I just hate overpaying and like to get good deals when paying with my money.
No brand loyalty from me if I feel that a corporation is trying to milk me.

Which individual is that? Me? I am not a fanboy - just the person that is after a camera that demands good IQ from a camera that suits.

For me to move to Nikon would mean buying a D4 to replace the 1D4 - I just hate spending and like to get good deals when paying with my money - that is why all my kit is bought used. Can you say that?

since my switch to the big N, I'm really looking forward to this D600 as a backup body to the D800. If it pans out, nikon will have a sweet FF lineup

D700 (8 fps low MP)
D600 (5-6 fps, mid MP)
D3X (though build, mid MP)
D4 (tough build, fast fps, high ISO)
D800 (big MP, high DR)

wow.  :) Now if they can just mix them all into the nikon D4XS  ;D

i dont think garlic would be effective...it's effective just against vampires and as an 800 owner he cant be a vampire ;)

An A/F motor in the BODY!!! You mean like Minolta used to have and got nothing but grief for?  No, no, Nikon, A/F motors belong in the LENS.  This is 2012, right?

 ;D funny. But Nikon is the land of vampires.... and they are resonably old vampires, nearly 5 years since turning. I've never been much of one. Maybe that's why I'm fleeing the canon lands?

still not confirmed but I hope not. I never understood nikonian's obsession with lenses they don't buy or own anyways. It's like 1% of the population wants a feature and it is so vocal, yet every lens worth shooting with moved to USM long ago. Nikon just needs to do away with the added cost of that motor drive and let whoever is holding off to ancient nikon lenses to buy the more pricier cameras. They will complain about some lower end body not having a feature yet they will just buy the high end D4 anyways. what's the point then!

this should be a budget FF dslr for people that only own USM/SWM glass anyways. do away with that drive.

Kudos to Nikon if they can bring the D600 to market at the rumored price and with the rumored specs. Whatever entry-level FF body Canon comes out with in response will be my next backup body ;D

Nikon is pulling out all the stops this round, so it wouldn't surprise me if they pulled it off. Prior to the D800's release, many people thought a 36 mp FF body with a 51-point AF system and dual slots would cost $4K, but the rumored price of $3K was spot on.

Even as a Canon shooter, I don't see what there is to get upset about. Competition is a beautiful thing :)

It's also a nice message to send to companies: bring out great gear at a fair price, and we'll buy it.

Precisely. If Canon loses market share because of the D600 and D800, it will force Canon to up their game. I own Canon gear, not Canon stock. As such, I don't care what other people shoot with, but Canon shooters can only benefit if Canon has some real competition. For many years, Canon didn't have any real competition. So here's to hoping that Nikon keeps pushing the envelope of technology and value, forcing Canon to keep pace.

Exactly!
Canon has been a bit too much on the pricey side lately. My biggest complaint about the 5D3 is - in facts - its price.
