I find it humorous that this camera gets a plus for smaller size. I find the ergonomics intolerable. There is no good reason to make a FX (full-size, pro like) camera in a diminutive size. The controls are unnecessarily smaller, you can not shoot with your left eye, and unless you have minuscule hands, I can't imagine wielding full size 77mm lenses without a battery extension. Add to that, the complicated two or more button interface, and you have the first Nikon AF in my twenty years of using them, that I couldn't instantly do a shoot, without looking at the manual. I am not happy about my D600 purchase.

Aside from the dust problem (easily removed in PP), it's the best FF DSLR I have ever owned! Just Terrific!

Mine has no sensor dust/oil sprinkle, yes it has 2 card slots. I use mine for raw+JPEG. Excellent image quality at all iso ranges and all types of lighting. Sturdy, sufficiently heavy but not too heavy, enough to get tac sharp images. Gamout of features and capabilities. To summarize if you want a hummer, you better be a good driver.

Some mistakes here on D600 specification: it has 2 SD card slots, it supports 24p video, and it is actualy better at hig ISO then D800 and D4! (according to DXO ratings)

And the price is $2100.
