Looks like oil, but it's water.

Havnt been in here a while :D How is everyone?

I might be about to pull the trigger on a D600...

If you can stretch I think the D610 is a better choice

Said D600 is $800-something at Adorama via Amazon, So about half price.. I'd normally agree but I think its quite tempting for $600 off

is the shutter issue that bad? I mean I'll still have my 7D and GX7 as backups.

Was thinking kicking around with the D600, 35mm f/1.8G FX, a 60mm AF-D Micro-Nikkor and maybe get a deal on a used 180mm f/2.8D..

Basically buy the Nikkors i drooled over when i still shot Nikon film cameras and sort of-kind of replicate my old EOS 3 film system (15-30, 50 1.4, 200L)

(And eventually pick up the 24-120 and 200-500 VR to go on it..)

I had a D600, sent back to nikon for the "fix" got it bad still had problems was able to get replaced with a D610 while they were doing that. My buddy had a D600 and sent it in got it back and never had a problm again, so its really hit or miss my honest opinion. My d610 was great just loved my d700 for the work i am doing

Well it is from Adorama, so theoretically if i got one id know pretty fast if it has an issue (within the return period) and i can just return it unless im misunderstanding how bad the issue is..

Or as said, ill just fork more for either a refurb D750 (Which ive seen around the price of a 610, id love the tilt-flip screen) or the 610. This is why I came to ask first ;)

Reading over my past posts in this thread, can proudly say I finally jumped ship (Canon > Sony > Nikon) and just got my brand new D810! Its an absolute beast and can't believe the amount of settings one can adjust! Its truly amazing. The Sony A7R wasn't cutting it and wanted the same (and better) IQ of the 36MP sensor, but in a solid, robust, and reliable body. Can't wait to put this thing through its paces and add more Nikkor glass to my kit! Next up is the 58 1.4G :p

Congrats on the D810. I toss up whether to lust over a D750 or D810 as a backup/alternate from time to time. The new D5 has thrown a spanner in the works though

I'd give the 85/1.4G a try before the 58G personally. I'd also take the 50Art before it (though I think the 58G has that slightly smoother look wide open that the 50L has in comparison)

I have the 85 1.4 on my list as well. 50 has always been my go to lens and want to fill the void that the 50L left (my favourite lens I have used). Would a 58 and 85 be too redundant?

Only you can answer that. I would have no trouble owning both and have owned an 85/1.8D and Sigma 85 at different times all the while also owning a 35Art and 50Art. I don't see having many sort-of close focal length primes as redundant as they all have their own characteristics and in my use will often be alone in the bag for the day.

If you can afford having them all, go for it

I use them both (D810) and their focal lengths are different enough for me. The 85G is fairly close to the 85L (perhaps bokeh is a little better on the 85L in some scenario's). I originally thought WTF when I purchased the 58G but it's grown into one of my favourite lenses now I know it's quirks and how to shoot with it.

I will most likely end up grabbing both! Haven't really shot much with an 85 lens, but for the times when I want some compression it will sure come in handy. Not sure if I should grab the 70-200 as well since when I had my Canon it rarely got used.

I think for my ultra wide needs, the 14-24 is the best bet. Ive wanted that lens for so many years but as a Canon user I never really liked the idea of spending all that money just to MF it (even though for a wide angle its not a big deal).

Ive been using the A7R for a few months and love the juicy 36MP files, however the compressed Sony files did have a noticeable effect in the images. A lot of texture and details would be "mushed" (such as details in trees, grass etc.). Excited to have a fully usable 36MP file. Just need to upgrade my computer now to handle the new files a bit better.
