I've been shooting with my Nikon D40 for a long time now. It has been my entry-level camera. I love this lightweight easy to handle camera. It's been the perfect little friend to learn photography.
For a while now though, I've felt it's time to move up a step. Since I'm starting to get more serious about the photography business, mainly shooting families and children in natural light environment, I feel the need of something more. I've been reading and looking at reviews for a while and I'm seriously thinking of the D600.
My lenses are: 18-55 kit, 35mm, 70-200mm and 16-85mm
I would appriciate any feedback on this, is the D600 a good choice?
Thanks in advance
