Been looking forward to their review. Here's what they have to say about the dust issue:

"Something that we've definitely got our eye on though, and which we'll be in a better position to comment on over time, is the D600's apparent tendency to attract sensor dust. We're working with Nikon to understand (and further test) this issue and we'll update this review accordingly as we use the camera over time."

So far i have only a few gripes about the D600. the viewfinder is darker than my 7d, i have to smash my glasses to see. may be its just the rubber is thiner compared to canon. needs a grip for sure. the files are killer tho. love the IQ.

Was out with my 24pc-e today - need to get a 21 zf for those really "sharp" landscapes... dont get me wrong I love the lens but there is no match to what i got from the 1dsmk3 and 21 ze.... also the screen on the d800 is really bad for focusing in daylight (live view that is...) hate to say it but tomorrow i bring my zacuto for a photograph...

Imho the 16-35mm@21mm and the 14-24mm@21mm are basically a match for the 21 zeiss. *ducks*, I'm sure I'll get crucified for that one but meh. :-0 Hehe. And yeah, the D800 screen blows. It makes me sad. The 5d3 screen is so much better. :( sigh

With all the complaints from both brands, I've raised the white flag. I'm moving to digi MF. :)

If it's just dust that's not a really big deal. Because I change lenses a lot I do get dust on the sensor and it's a simple matter to lock up the mirror and blow it off. Excess oil is a completely different matter and I would not be a happy camper if I had one of the bodies spraying oil.

I was given a disc with over 120 full size images from this body. While the D800 is fantastic for the FX/35mm format there is simply no comparison, not for landscape and studio work.

From the reviews and the DNGs I have I don't know if I would go with a Hassy if I wanted to do MF.

I really should confess I shoot two systems as well, I have a couple of s43 Olympus bodies and a bunch of s43 glass. ;)

What would be your choice? Hassy for me falls into affordable. :)

The 7D viewfinder only shows DoF to f/4, Which allows it to be substantially brighter than just about any other camera's viewfinder, The D600 most likely has a viewfinder that renders DoF to f/2.8 correctly, Which would make it brighter...
