Nikon D600 24MP Full Frame DSLR Officially Unveiled


Nikon D600

Nikon has finally take the wraps off one of its worst-kept secrets – the full frame D600 DSLR.

The Nikon D600 is a bit of an entry-level to the full frame DSLR world.  While it packs a whopping 24.3MP sensor (most likely the same sensor or derivation of the one inside the new Sony A99), it also features some limitations like a max shutter speed of 1/4000s (instead of the 1/8000s shutter speed found on the Nikon D7000 and higher models).

Nonetheless, the D600 offers full frame prowess at a more affordable retail price point than ever before.  At just $2099.95, the Nikon D600 is most certainly a bargain and will likely fly off shelves for months to come.  You can order the Nikon D600 body here at B&H Photo.

The D600 is also available as kit with the Nikon AF-S 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR lens for $2699.95.  The D600 w/ 24-85mm lens kit is available here at B&H Photo.

The Nikon D600 should be in stores on September 18.
