The US price is $2,099, equating to £1300, or £1574 including VAT, assuming $1.6 to the pound. The UK price is £1955, for a D7000 style body. Not even an eyepiece shutter. Idiot modes on the function dial. Pay a little more and you get a D800. Thoughts?
I suspect Nikon UK do not want this to sell here.

Thats a shame, I was hoping it would be a lot cheaper than that, if I had £2K to spend on a ff camera I think I would definitely spend an extra £400 on a D800.
Well that p'd on my bonfire, was hoping to get one but at this price no chance! If I had the brass I would pay that bit extra and get a d800
I am so disapointed, out of my price range to. I was under the impression it was going to be between 7000 price and 800. Maybe if they threw in a lense but no, very disapointed. I will stay with my Olympus 620 and 400 which have both been amazing, but I juust would have liked a full frame camera, but obvioously not to be:
Bit of an own goal really, too expensive, as everyone has already said, spend a few more quid and get a D800.
£1995 is pretty much what I expected as a launch price. It should come down to about £1795 street price within a few months.
Comparing it to the D800 is not really valid. The D800 is a camera for the photography enthusiast. The D600 will be regarded as a top-end "consumer" camera, providing more of the consumer-level bells and whistles (much like comparing the D90 to the D300 a few years ago).
Obviously, given the current price difference, I would expect most enthusiasts on this forum to opt to pay a few £-hundred extra for the D800. But there is a huge market (the cruise ship brigade) for an expensive (sometimes for its own sake) camera with the right badge and with features that make it easier to use by the non-photographer. Not all those rich folk know what shutter priority or aperture priority or depth of field mean. Nor do they want to learn.
I'm thinking the same way as others that you might as well save the extra £400's up and get the D800. I was going to suggest to my other half to get the D600 but not now. Looks like thats 2 D800's being bought next year.

Clever marketing by Nikon, perhaps.
I notice that they've dropped AF micro-adjustment from the specs of the D600. That seems a very strange omission for a £2k camera when it's something that can just be provided in firmware.
I was going to get a D600 but the price is too high for the spec. If the USA price is c.$1500 then the 2k plus seems to be a bit of a rip off!
This is probably worth a read for existing and proto- Nikon users: Thom Hogan's initial comments
D600 seems aimed at the low-end user
D800 would have been my choice for a move up to FF despite the apparant quality control focus issues, but as I will be out of a job soon I will have to stick my trusty D300...after all it does what I want it to
D4 would be perfect, imo, but price is even more prohibitive when one consider all the other bit to compliment it
In our equipment database you can find each camera by searching D600, D700 and D800 and in each case tick the compare box. Then click on the compare link and see the specifications side by side. It's an interesting comparison.

T'was always so. But don't forget that the USA price excludes sales tax - which has to be added and varies from state to state. The UK price is inclusive of VAT at 20% and import duty.

Not seen that before Pete, really impressed with it.

You can get a D800 for £2100, so about £150 extra.
