Not sure where to put this post, so popped it in here for now, sure moderators will move it if wrong. Another more positive rumour today, Mansurov's reporting imminent release of the D600 FX. Also two new lenses one being the Nikon 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR.
The comment about the D600 being "small and light" left me. Small/light camera bodies never worked for me, prefering a body with the size and heft of the D200 or D700 without grips. Just my preference and opinion; I'll wait to see and handle the "real thing" in the camera store.
