do you find that you grab it over the d600 or the D3s or the D4 for weddings?

I use all my bodies. For faster AF and low light, I use the D4s' and D3s. The D800 is capable but, it can struggle a bit in low light. The D600 for me now is great for a walk around light weight camera when I don't need 36 MPs. If you're deciding on a camera with resolution and price the D600 would be my choice. :)

when did this thread get moved into the EOS digital camera threads? weird. The first was in general photography i think.

anyways borrowlens has a rental for a d600 and an 18-105mm for 7 days for 135 for both. not a bad deal, I might do that for my disney world trip in september, guess its like renting a Ferrari for me, maybe i should just add some more and go with the D4 instead.lol.

Um, what? The 18-105 is a DX (crop) lens. The D600 is an FX (full frame) camera. You'll want a full frame lens on the D600 to really try it out.

Get the 24-85 instead of the 18-105. The 24-85 is an excellent all-rounder on the D600. The total for that will be $145 instead of $135.

Cool thanks for the heads up, I only knew from past trips the 18-105 worked great on d200 dx but wasn't sure on the FX bodies.

You're going to love the combination. I took these at Disneyland with that very combination:

When looking for a large prime 200 or 300mm from tamron or Tokina what should I be looking for as far as codes that will work with a DX body. I found a Tamron SP AF 300mm f/2.8 LD IF I like, it says auto focus but still not sure what to be looking for. I won't be buying one for awhile but I like window shopping for the right thing.

Taking My Nephew Shooting

Just got back from taking my nephew out shooting in the Pawnee. I've been teaching him how to shoot since he was around 4 years old, starting with an old single shot .22 rifle.

At 12 he is now a crack shot with just about any rifle and is starting to get very good with a pistol. It as taken him longer with a pistol since that is a lot of weight to hold out from your body for a little guy. He is growing and getting stronger though, and today he was shooting clays like a pro with my 9mm's and a .22 1911.

Well here are a few pictures I shot of him while he was shooting. Taken with a Nikon D600 and a Samyang 35mm F1.4 lens.

Here's one he took of me while I was busting clays. Pretty decent little shooter! (the nephew ;))

Be careful with legacy third party lenses. You could end up with a lens that won't AF with the body and you have to send it in to Tamron/Tokina to get it updated.

That's certainly true for the Canon EOS system. I'm not so sure it applies to the Nikon F mount.

Older autofocus lenses would typically use the screw drive. If the lens is using that type of drive, then I would expect it to work on any Nikon body that has that drive.

You still might be right here, though. Are there any reports of people having to send their third party Nikon F-mount screw-drive lenses back to the manufacturer to be re-chipped?
