Is this a problem that is inherent on Canons also?

Was considering ditching the d600 for 5D3, but now I'm not 100% sure..

I have not really considered it. I believe the focusing system isn't AS good as the 5D3, but can you tell me what your reasoning is? I've tried editing a D800 raw file and I didn't find it to be that much different from D600--perhaps just a little more neutral. I might have it all wrong though..........I think by nature, the D600 just has less neutral colors and it takes more time for me to correct/process the way I want.

I certainly don't feel that I need more megapixels and I would hate to have 36mp files----my initial impression regarding the smaller RAW files the D810 offers isn't what it was hyped up to be (I read just one review)

You are already invested in Nikon. The D800 is considered one of the best cameras, in this class and the D810 just improved on it.
Early reports on the D810 is that several pro's (one I personally know) are turning more to it than their D4's.

The D810 is an amazing camera and from a few people - have said the D7100 is the crop eqv of it, i would love to have a full frame some days, but its the extra reach i would need that puts me off, my max is currently 450mm on a crop frame so i would get no where with 300mm on full, yet the other end of the spectrum i wish i had wider, sort of wish there was a good IQ 28-450mm zoom, that would sort me out....

So is it the colors we're supposed to respond to with your photos? Personally, I think the lighting is a bit high key as well (your first photos having a slight wash in highlights/ dark background vs blown background and subject in the last). When it comes to color balance, I've found the Nikons I've shot with do tend to have more of a yellow cast then what I'd prefer. You can either adjust WB or in post. I've had occasions where I've had to get similar colors with Canons and Nikons, and find that if you set their Kelvins to the exact same values, their colors wind up being very close. IMO, Canon's auto WB is more natural off the bat.

I've used the D600 with no problems. I just have to keep in mind that the AF layout is limited in certain situations.

Also, there is rumor of the D750 with 24 MPs with 51 point AF. This may be your ticket to replace your D600 bodies. :)

The D810 Af is superb! It's what the D800/D800E should've been when first released. :)

I was waiting for the show before grabbing up the 810 as it looks to be all that and more...if the D4x didn't drop.
But now with the 750..I have high hopes (fingers crossed)

Yes, I am wondering how they will position the 750 and hoping (in vain probably) that it will be an update on the D700 (new sensor, AF with the speed type performance of the D700) rather than a rehash of the D600

The D810 seems very very interesting, especially the new AF and improvements in video. Anyone here try it out? I am mostly interested in the new AF and how it compares to the AF of the 5DIII

No offense, but the D7100 is no where near the crop equivalent of the D810. If anything it's the crop equivalent of the D600/D610 since they share similar AF modules and MP count. About the only thing is has in common with the D810 is the word Nikon on the front.

I'm getting my D810 in hopefully this week, since I'm not invested on glass what so ever, I decided to spring for the film makers kit to get the 35/50/85, some extra batteries, some ND filters, etc. I was afraid it wouldn't come out until I came back from my vacation I planned months back but B&H shows it'll be available on 8/26.

Fair enough, i was just speculating that the D7100 is the best crop frame camera from nikon if not from them all, just like the D810 is the best full frame from nikon and probably others as well.
