John: Great thing about the D600 is you get an immensely large tonal content and can develop the shot in many different directions, far from the JPEG you might also have produced at the time of shooting. I hope the next D8xx will produce as smooth gradients as the D600 does.

Interesting grundge style!

Thanks Frank.

The D600 is a very versatile camera. Although bought to use it as backup only, reliability and quality is very good and now used also as one of the main camera's. 

Keep in mind that a D8xx or +32mp camera is not always a step forward.

Megapixels are not important. To many for most practical application anyway. Tonality is important and White Balance and color consistency and AF reliability.

Each of these aspects is more important than sheer spatial resolution on top of incredible resolution to start with

But.

If I see a lens like the 1.4/105E that outperforms anything built yet, I can bear to have the unbelievable resolution on top of all the really important goods

Apart from the AF, the Fuji S5 is great in Tonality, White Balance, Colour and Dynamic Range.

A lens is just a tool  and outperformance subjective.  ;)

Fascinated what is possible in technology and trying to make good use of it, I can of course always go "low tech". Ooc jpeg:
