The list would make more sense if it was limited to goals and how that one camera fits them. Adding in the D800/e as a comparison without having experience with it is a disservice to both the camera and readers. For those who shoot the D800, it is plenty agile and due to dedicated controls, is a fast response camera which seems to be a misstated point in the comparison. I dare say it is a better hand held reaction camera than the D600 because of a number of subsystem optimizations that it has over other cameras. But it is not for all people, neither is the D600. Some would get their full enjoyment out of sticking with one of the modern DX cameras and the lower cost, ease of use and value.
Another reason to not dismiss the D800, is that KR hates it. If ever there was a rational valid reason to invest in a great camera it would because he pans it. Stan St Petersburg Russia
