I assume that you would be buying a D600? If you buy, make sure to buy the 14-24mm. I don't describe many lenses as masterpieces, but that is.
Thanks very much Aaron! 14-24 been on my wish list for ages, definately top pick! best ultra wide; one can get .. the only trouble is to carry it around .. its massive!
I am tossing between Nikon D600 and Canon 6D. I am taking DXO Mark measurements with a grain of salt. Actually buying a camera is much more for me than scientific measurements in lab environment where it gets completely reverse in the field. Measurements doesn't show me the complete picture, it depends too much who is measuring and what he is trying to acheive. As every person has its own opinion.
Canon lenses specially the kit lens 24-105 L @f4 constant makes much more sense to me than nikon kit 24-85 with varrying max aperture. On DPReview I found Mark III as cleanest sensor at high ISO (select RAW and no noise reduction). Cleanest among all of them is Fuji X1-Pro. I personally like DR between 11 and 12, its quite adequate, if you getting blown out highlights on that range, you will also get them blown at 13+. In real world you wont see a single scene where clipping will occur only between 12-13, so when its harsh light it will destroy everything, saving 1EV range won't help at all. We should wait for a good light for landscape photos like pro does, and there 10EV is wide enough. So the term DR is hyped up. Multiple exposure HDR image is the answer for most of these situations and am also not big fan of HDR generally. I prefer punchy contrasty colors. So for me more versatile, lighter and slightly narrower @F4 Canon Lenses better suits travelling photographer needs than DR measurement on Nikon FF.
I am also considering Fuji X-E1. This photokina brought so many excellent products, its almost impossible to decide one camera on the basis of a single logic. 6D? D600? GH3? NEX6? LX7? G15? or X-E1 ..
Wow. Are you trying to do full-spectrum photography?
No, I don't even completely understand this domain
