With the D600, Nikon essentially takes its pro-level D800 DSLR, gives it a lighter body, a lower megapixel count, a simplified set of controls -- and a price cut of almost $1,000, making it one of the most affordable full-frame DSLRs available. The D600 takes very sharp pictures, and thanks to that full-frame sensor, excels at shooting in virtually any lighting conditions, all the way up to ISO 6400. It can capture 5.3 frames per second in burst mode, and has a very good HD movie mode. At over $2,000, the D600 may not be cheap, and buying good full-frame lenses to take full advantage of its capabilities will bump the price up even more. But if you've been waiting for a pro-level Nikon at a consumer-friendly price, you'll find the D600 hard to beat (if you're a Canon shooter looking for the same, you'll want to check out the EOS 6D, due out later this year).
