              Common weaknesses:
              "Poor" maximum light sensitivity ISO 6,400
              "Poor" boost ISO ISO 25,600
              Which cameras are these compared to?
              Do these other cameras produce anything other than noise above 25,600?

              This replacement is for the sensor's dust and oil issue

              Nikon D600 deprecate 40% of its value in 10 months :) Nikon is losing some loyal customer - bad strategy NIkon.
