Back to the Future--And Thanks!
This post is just a thanks for all the information already posted and to be posted in this forum.
I just picked up a D600 kit this week.
I shot some film back in the Canon FD days using only primes. After a long, long hiatus, I jumped back to SLR photography when Nikon launched the D70s.
I appreciated the advances in technology--digital capture, autofocus, zoom lenses, etc.--but, somehow, something just didn't feel right.
I thought maybe I wanted to go back to film, so I kept an opportunistic eye out for kit. I assembled a nice set of AI/AIS lenses at what seemed to me to be giveaway prices. As I started to dabble in film again, I realized it wasn't just about the film. What I really wanted was to put manual focus primes on a full-frame, but relatively compact, camera with good low-light performance and good dynamic range. Well, I can do that now with the D600. So I'm pretty excited.
This is not to say I'll never dress up my D600 with modern accoutrements--never say "never" to NAS after all--but at least I can always go back to what feels "right."
P.S. I shot my off white office wall at F22 and freaked when I saw a nasty dark streak at high magnification. Turns out, though, I need to clean my wall! Still, I'll monitor the whole dirty sensor issue as I proceed.

Maybe that's been the problem all along!
