Trying very hard to decided. I'm keeping my D7000 and selling my D200. This will probably be the last camera I buy for 5 or so years. I only have one DX lens (Nikon 12-24), the rest are FF (T90, Nik 24-85 D, 80-200 2ring, 300 AFS plus TC's.

I shoot about half wildlife/macro and the rest landscapes/cityscapes and do lots of video with my D7K.

So help me out with a poll. Which would you buy given my lenses and my two key subject areas?

I did not vote cause I'm so confused:)

I have both, but I have not used the D600 since I bought the D7100 except for some paid portrait work. For wildlife/macro I would say 100% D7100. For landscape, you have the wide end covered with a DX lens. I don't shoot video at all, but unless you want the shallow DOF or wider view, the D7100 is your camera.

I would get the D600 as you already have the D7000. My wife and I just got rid of our D300's, D200 and D80. We purchased a D600 and a D7100. So far it has been a great move for us. I thought for quite a while about getting rid of the D300 and wait for a D400. Like you we have 1 DX lens (18-200, which is stunning on the D7100 BTW) and the rest are FX (50, 60, 70-200, 105VR, 70-300VR, 300/f4 AFS, 1.4 and 1.7 tc's). So, now we have both formats and all is good. I forgot, we do have another DX lens, a Sigma 10-20 which does a great job on the D600 in DX mode. We shoot the same subjects as you.

Micah - Size is a real consideration and I think the D800 is just too big.

voted for d600, also shooting wildlife and some macro with a d600 and d7000, for me both match together very nicely, depending on the task I can choose between dx vs fx, not "more of the same (d7000 and d7100)

I'm somewhat in the same boat; I only have a pair of D200's and I know it's time to upgrade.

A few weeks ago I walked into a local shop and was fortunate to see a D7100, D600 and a Canon 6D. Surprisingly, I really liked the 6D! My second choice was the D7100, third was the D600. The D7100 had a much more solid feel than the D600 imo.

Getting back with Nikon, it is the D600 for me.

For me full frame is a must. I did not want a Big Pro body anymore, so it quickly came down to the D800 or the D600.
I like the resolution of 24 MP of the D600 better and the reviews are rather excellent in areas of interest to me.

Got one this weekend, together with a 24-70 2.8 AF-S and a 70-200 2.8 AF-S VR II. I may get a 14-24 2.8 later, but I am not sure about that yet. No rush.
First results after getting used to it over the weekend are excellent, better than my (already high) expectations!

If I could dream, I would like a D700 body with D600 specs. Ahhhh.....:Love:
