Catching up with the Nikon D600 (JPEG and NEF samples, previews, unboxing)

The Nikon D600 buffers have filled up again, so it is time for a new round-up! Each round-ups features previously unmentioned posts, although, given the chaotic nature of Photokina announcements, some overlap may occur and some posts may be accidentally omitted.

Opinions, Etc

+ 60 photographers fighting over five D600 display models at ePhotozine

User-Generated Content

YouTube Hall of Shame
+ idiot/spammer republished the Nikon Senior Program manager overview video of the camera and promotes it as "Honest and Real" review - see YouTube. This is a very bad practice.
