I was very tempted to try one of those refurbished D600's when the price dropped when they went to Adorama Ebay but I have been holding out. Than I almost jumped on the Canon 6D with 24-105 deal but missed that. It is good to hear your opinion since you have a 6D. Now I think I will wait for the Nikon D610 (that dr is amazing). How is the live view on the D600 as compared to the 6D?
A couple things:
1. The live view is definitely inferior on the D600. Noisier, and no ability to change aperture while it's activated. I haven't played with it a ton so far, but when I was researching these bodies, that was widely agreed upon (even by many Nikon fans).
2. I just got my second refurb D600 today, and it's even worse with the dust problem than the first. Amazingly, both arrived absolutely filthy out of the box and had to be wet cleaned right away. Perhaps the store I'm ordering from is recirculating duds, but I'm concerned this is actually what Nikon views as an acceptable "refurbished" product from their factories. I have very little faith in Nikon's customer service and overall business practices after all I've read (and now experienced firsthand) regarding the D600 fiasco. If it weren't for that damn Sony sensor...
