Introduction

Building off the surprise success of the popular D800, and recognizing the demand for a cheaper full frame camera, Nikon announced the D600 at this year's Photokina. The incredible 36-megapixel sensor found on the D800 does not return, instead we trade down to a still-impressive 24.3 megapixel CMOS. Other key features include a 39-point autofocus system, ISO sensitivity that maxes out at 25,600, continuous shooting at 5.5 frames per second, and 1080p HD video recording.

But let's be honest, the best feature is still that tiny price tag. The D600 retails for only $2,099, going head-to-head with the Canon 6D in the newly-formed "affordable" full-frame market.
