Having used a D50 before, I decided it was time for an upgrade, and I picked the D600 over the D7000 - a situation similar to yours. I've heard so many times that your camera isn't supposed to make much of a difference, but I sure do have more fun shooting with the D600 over the D50. I find myself wanting to pick it up and go shoot more frequently, and I'm learning the truth in that saying, "the best camera is the one you have with you."

After shooting candids of my niece with good FX glass while on vacation, I have gotten the same consistent responses from people who see the photos. I have even heard these consistent responses indirectly through other friends, in response to out-of-camera JPGs posted to Facebook while on vacation.

Most people who view my images don't care about sharpness to the degree that some of us fetishize it. Any modern DSLR with a functioning lens can produce images sharp enough for 99% of people. In my D600 shots, people seem to notice more the narrow depth of field, low noise in high-ISO shots, and my use of fast glass in the focal lengths they were intended to be used. As someone who shot a 50 1.8 cropped through a tiny viewfinder for years, that experience was nothing like being able to shoot a 35mm lens as a 35mm lens through a big, bright viewfinder. I don't think people often talk in this forum about the ability to use both new high-performance and older inexpensive FX glass, but the wide range of FX glass available has been a welcome advantage of shooting with a D600.
