Hey there! I had the idea to put the D600 head to head against the current camera models available today. If you live in Alabama, check out the casting call under photographers.

I've been shooting with the D800 since late April, the D600 for a week or so. My workhorse for studio and landscape has been the D3x

By the various matrix used to evaluate these cameras on the review sites, the D800 and D600 should be better

not in my experience - in one critical aspect for fashion and landscape both

the D3x produces a much more "three dimensional" looking image and handles both depth and textures better. 

I am using the D800 a lot for fashion stories and testing the D600 as a backup. I am thinking more and more though that they will not replace my D3x as my primary camera.....

I can throw in a high ISO from a D800 (6400) if someone wants.

For those of you that wanted to see- here's the d800 at 6400 ISO, in a basically pitch black room, and a zoom in on his costume for those that want to see the noise level. Old Nikkor 35-135, shutter speed was 1/60th at f3.5  The shot is completely unprocessed- straight from the cam. No editing other than to resize.

Here's a long exposure (45 seconds+) of the room in question, when i'm there shooting on my own.
