Notable Limitations of the D600

My perspective: I seek to eliminate any camera behavior that interferes with efficient shooting; for me this means I would consider only dual D800 bodies, not a D600 and D800; it’s just not worth the hassle with the differences; it can mean a lost shot, card incompatibility, blown-out image, etc, all detailed below.

If one intends to shoot only one camera body, the D600 is a fine camera, but for my shooting style the D600 is an ergonomic hassle compared to the D800/D800E; it does not fit my hands as well nor is it as efficient to operate; I am used to Nikon’s pro bodies. I would not consider the D600 for my uses, not in context of what it really costs.

Mode dial

The mode dial at top left locks in place (good), but is difficult to operate, being an awkward shape with an award button to unlock it. I dislike it very much compared to the D800.
