I don't know about you guys, but I am really fed up of reading about this being an "affordable full frame camera". It sells for around 2000 pounds! It is more than twice the price of the D7000. It is affordable to whom? It's a great camera and I wish I could own one. But please, stop trying to convince people that they can afford it.

I think they are trying to say in the world of full frame DSLR cameras, Nikon D600 is indeed the cheapest and also the smallest in size.

And as we just found out, the camera sensor performance is also EXCELLENT !

Perhaps we can start saving today.  LOL !  Grin

Okay, affordable is relative.

However, if you are learning or working your way up the Nikon system you can eventually afford this. Watch me now.

Buy a D300S on ebay. Learn and earn on it for a year then resell it on ebay. Then take your money and add some of your set aside earnings or Paypal surplus from selling off "good but no longer fun stuff" and buy the next camera level up. It will take you some time. How much time really depends on you and your pace of earning, doing and selling. Just keep it going until you get where you want to go.

Basically, it comes down to how much of an enthusist are you or just how bad do you want this? Anything is do-able if you set your mind to it. I have been doing this since 2008 and I just received my new D800E last week. I knew nothing of Digital photography 4 yrs ago, so I took a course at NYIP and bought an entry level Nikon D40 kit.

I started out as a broke enthusiastic Nikon newbee and four years later I am still broke but now a Nikon addict with a new D800E. See my point?! So ask yourself "just how bad do I want this camera"?

@rixirox hehe .. this is a new definition of addordability indeed!

however, see it in another way, get a D600 and a general purpose zoom lens like for 24-70mm, get it from tamron if you wanna save few 100$ and add VR to it. Its apperture is 2.8 which is same as 1.4 on m43 (my system of choice). At f2.8 it will give you same shallow DOF and with the high ISO advantage (atleast as DXOMark is advocating) you will get atleast 1 EV advantage. That means better than 3 prime lenses on m43. I am not considering level of sharpness or CA, vig and other parameter (in my opinion, no one can beat m43 on those optical ground).

So add up all the cost of 3 top prime lenses, OMD and compare it with roughly 3000$ D600 kit with tamron VR 24-70! Smiley)

Jokes apart @DxOMark please complete the review on

Tamron SP AF 70-200mm F/2.8 Di LD (IF) MACRO Nikon and Nikon 80-200mm f/2.8D ("New," 1997-)

There are thousands of readers like me, those who fully dependent on your Lens Review.

I am sure it will be overall cheap if we can use these Lenses on Nikon D600.  Roll Eyes

Having said all about affordability, I would still consider GH3 higher over any FF with its primes or new f/2.8 (FF f/5.6) lenses as the IQ at lower resolution should be similar (if not same, your milaege may vary) and higher ISO over 1600 to 3200 with some marginal difference and above 6400, well I don't care as I never used such insane ISO in last 12 years.

As affordability also boils down what size and weight you can carry and been an enthusiast traveller, it matters a lot to me, with shrinking FF/APSC camera bodies, their lenses are still quite big and heavy.

Probably the most critical factor here is DOF as it will be same on all ISO settings and no advancement in technlogy can match these two formats on these grounds. Except maybe some IB software PP in future. But it again depends on your shooting style, I prefer DOF of m43 in most of the scenerios I deal with, f2.8 on m43 is more useful for me than f2.8 on FF; probably a wedding photographer could have a different level of acceptance!
