Nikon Rumors has posted an update list of specifications for the rumored-to-be-coming-soon, full frame Nikon D600. Notably, Nikon Rumors seems rather confident that the previously rumored absence of an AF motor is not true and that the D600 will, indeed, feature a built-in AF motor for legacy Nikon AF lenses.
The revised Nikon D600 spec list is as follows:
- 24.7MP full frame sensor
- Weight: 760g (850g with battery and memory cards), the D800 weights 900g
- 3.2″ LCD with 921K dot with ambient sensor control
- HDMI output
- Video compression: H264/MPEG-4
- Full HD with 30p, 25p, 24p, HD with 60p, 50p, 30p, 25p
- Viewfinder coverage: 100% for FX , 97% for Dx
- Built-in AF motor
- Probably weather sealed
- No built-in GPS as initially reported
- ISO range: 100-6400 (with Lo-1 ISO 50 and Hi-2 ISO 25,600)
- 39 AF points (with an option of 11 AF points), 9 cross-type AF points
- AF face detection
- Exposure compensation: ±5 EV (same as the D800)
- The D600 will probably use the EN-EL15 rechargeable Li-ion battery
The original rumored price-point was around $1500 (half the price of the D800) to which there’s been no further rumors or speculation. If Nikon ships this camera in that price range (I remain skeptical of it though), I think it will be very disruptive in the DSLR market. If Canon fails to respond in-kind, this could very well be a camera that makes it worth jumping systems for many.
What do you think about these rumored specs and price?
