    Oh yar, even though it's a 'quick and dirty' test - how's autoWB? very much like d800? or somewhat inferior?
    from the limited images that i have it looks good

    good question, but sorry i did not notice, too many distractions in the viewfinder

    D7000 VF only slightly smaller of viewing display.

    Just for example the rear LCD display.
    2.5" via 3" got different?
    But still can see of the full picture preview.

    If compare from viewing 95% via 100% that's lot of different.

    actually i disagree. 95% vs 100% is for coverage, what gets cut off, which is important.

    relative viewfinder size is important as well because it determines how big the view is. I was surprised that the full frame prism, and a 100% one (compared to d700) can be squeezed into a DX size VF.

    Yes I agree with you.

    I get your point, if viewing from FX at 100% should be no problem and the viewing just like D7000.
    If switch to DX lens would be remain the full view and added DX smaller of DX box right..

    That's I wanna find it up.. He he

    I am testing the d600 with the 24-120 f4, 24-85 and the 28-300. Will start to post this weekend. Bad news or good news is that it rains everyday. So you can really see what the combinations can do in bad light.

    Yup, I can't recommend testing that on purpose. Why would you do that if you're not a teenager anymore? :-)

    this is the 3 lenses that i tested with the D600 from left to right

    • AF-S NIKKOR 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR
    • AF-S NIKKOR 24-120mm f/4G ED VR
    • AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR

    will they perform on the D600? lets have a look

    shot with the 24-85, this is the full image


    F8 1/250s ISO1600


    and the same image with 100% crop, notice the holes in the leather


    this is the same file with a little editing to pull up the shadow details from the floor of the car, you can even see how dirty it is
