I never bought the D600 with the intention of cranking up the ISO. In almost a year of ownership, I think I've gone as high as 3200.

Until tonight. My cousin plays music at local gigs, so I decided to stop by and see what the D600 can do in low light. I figured I might have to go to 6400.

BZZZT! The lighting was so dismal, I cranked her all the way up to Hi2.0, and even then, I was shooting 1/60 at f/2.8. But I gotta admit, 25,600 after some noise reduction doesn't look all that bad, considering.

Definitely not worthy of a Rolling Stone cover, but better than I expected.

Not bad at all at that size. I think B/W would be even more pleasing. You should try a B/W version.

Pretty phenomenal. I remember exposures beyond 800 from my D40 started looking sketchy; high ISO from these full-frame digital cameras is amazing. The really cool thing is the quality of noise is improving appreciably as well.
