Good comments - no complaining from my perspective either. Just valid user feedback.

I'm largely a digital only shooter with 98% of my lifetime images taken with digital cameras. I can relate to Edwin's experience - I was pretty stunned at how difficult it was "dropping back" from 51 AF points to just 39. That single day prompted my to switch to the back button focus approach full time.

Perrone - I continue to be amazed by your sports images. Not just the capture, but the framing. Speeds are so fast with some sports.

I was reading something recently about someone who learned the craft with manual focus. Even with AF, they have a different style and use Manual Focus to fine tune or adjust as needed. The hit rates on focus were so much lower - even for the best photographers.

I've been trying to give the D600 a good workout and have used it for 95% of my images over teh past month. It reminds me a lot of the D7000, but has several key improvements. If it were not for the D800, people would be raving about the D600 as a great replacement for the D700 - 30% lower cost, double the pixels, lighter, video, etc.
