Barry,

I feel your pain. It is a difficult decision. So many features to compare.

I can say that coming from a D100, then a D200, and then a D300, I find the D600 far and away superior to my previous cameras on many levels. Perhaps if you are coming from the other side of the Nikon line, from a D2, D3, D4 perspective, the D800 will be more appealing to you.

The good news (or perhaps the bad news) is that you will not have to suffer a bad decision for very long. Nikon will have better cameras soon, and probably for less money--if history is any judge.

Top-of-the-line Nikon DSLR bodies are only going to be the best for a few years. In the film days, a top-of-the-line film body was on the top for 8 to 10 years.

I view the D600 as a special camera. For under Two Thousand Dollars, you get a 24 megapixels full frame FX camera with excellent features.

But the D800 is a special camera. For just under Three Thousand Dollars, you get a 36 megapixels full frame FX camera with excellent features.

But the D800E is a special camera. For a little over Three Thousand Dollars you get a 36 megapixels full frame FX camera with excellent features.

I think you would have to work hard to be disappointed with any of these cameras. The primary differences between the three are marginal, for the most part. The heart of each camera is superior high-resolution photographs. The Photographer makes more differences in the photographs than which camera is selected.

You pays your money (and you takes your choice).
