You miss the fact that tracking a moving object will be much better on the D600 simply it have more AF points to dance around.

Take a look at the video, so much fail on focus amirite? :D

Put a grip on it. I had gotten used to the ergonomics of the D800, then I got a grip for it and it feels even better.

Maybe I'll try that, I've had one on my Amazon wish list for a couple of months, and I just noticed the price has come down $1.93 since I put it on the list to only $397. Might be time to jump on that deal. ;)

Not sure if a vertical grip would help me (presume that's what's being discussed). The problem I find is that on Canon bodies, the palm of my right hand is on the side of the camera, with the joints in my fingers wrapping around the grip. The tips of my fingers just touch the front of the body, and that's quite comfortable.

On the Nikon bodies, the smaller grip means my finger tips hit the front of the body, such that I can't actually (comfortably) hold onto the grip (I have to squeeze quite hard to prevent dropping it). I presume the grip shape on a vertical grip would be the same, thus wouldn't really help.

Just wishing someone would put one of those wonderful sensors in a Canon shell :).

Hmmm... either that, or maybe I need to make a "grip pad" to make a Nikon grip the same size and shape as a Canon ;)


Camera, some lenses, too little time, too little talent

Just wanted to mention that I have similar ergonomic concerns as you despite having small hands. Canon cameras just fall to my hand better than the D600. The fact that I'm still following this thread is testament to the image quality of the D600, because I'm like you in that if I don't think I'll be comfortable using the camera for extended periods of time I can't seriously consider buying it.

I know what you mean, I tried a friends D3S over Christmas last year, that thing was a monster in my hands. It was miserable trying to use that thing with gloves on. My worry is the D800 gripped would be similar in size.

I agree, maybe the magic lantern folks could be convinced to swap a sensor and associated hw from a Nikon body to a Canon body. ;)

Yes!! As much as I love shooting Nikon, the ergonomics of the Canon 5D's and 1D's just feel better in my hands, especially the shutter button placement.

The D800 with a grip is a big camera. I need a new bag to be able to put the grip in the bag with grip attached.

The D800 with a grip is a bit taller. The D3S is still more heftier and has a more full body feel. IMO, the D3S feels a lot more comfortable. Just recently I was in a 4 hour studio shoot, started off with the D800E but my hands started to hurt a little and I have small hands. I never had this experience with the 1D4, 5D2 and the D3S but the D800E grip feels thin and uncomfortable. But thats me; although, I do love the D800E just don't like the grip.
