      Lol. No I am not matey. If I was i would have posted some discount vouchers for everyone.

  •  

    Now someone please recommend me some lenses for this camera. This is going to be my first camera, I am currently looking at Nikon AF 50mm f/1.4D Lens for portraits.

    •  

      50mm f1.8 or 50mm f1.4D , both lenses are good. depends what your budget is, if you want something that cost less than $1,000aud then any 50mm lens is one option. or Nikon 24-105mm f4 (great for traveling)

      •  

        Thanks I am also looking at Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM lens but now confused between this and the Nikon 50mm, is it true that the newer lenses have better depth of field or does this only depends on the camera.

        •  

          bigger sensor generally give out better DOF compare to smaller sensor. What I generally tell my friends, go to your local camera store inspect the lens in person.

          Also remember, D600 is a FX camera, so no point putting a DX lens on a FX camera, as you are not utilizing the full capability of the image sensor in the camera.

          Depends on what you mean by 'better' depth of field, and how you want your portraits to look.

          If you mean by 'better' depth of field a 'deeper/wider' depth of field (i.e. a wider range of distance from the sensor/film that appears to be in focus), then you have several options.

          1. Smaller aperture/f-stop (higher f-stop number)
            Not usually a problem with even cheap interchangeable lenses
            To have adequate exposure you may need a longer shutter speed (which may be easier with a tripod, or some sort of lens/sensor stabilization) or faster ISO
          2. More distance between the sensor/film and the subject

          3. Wider field of view (shorter focal length, less telephoto)
            Obviously, options 2 and 3 will alter the way your subject fills your photograph

          4. A smaller sensor
            A 'full-frame' 35mm camera, like the Nikon D600, will tend to have a shallow depth of field for a given f-stop, focal length and distance between subject to sensor,

          Try taking a photograph of a single flower at close range so that fills the photograph. A compact camera at a reasonably small aperture (usually f8 for that kind of camera) and compare the results with a 35 mm film/full frame digital camera with aperture below f4. I would venture to say that it is much easier to take that kind of a flower/insect photograph with a $400 compact camera than a $2000 digital SLR.

          If by 'better' depth of field you mean that you want to take photographs, typically portraiture, where the subject is sharp but everything else appears hazy (because of a narrow depth of field), then lenses with a wide aperture (small f-stop number) attached to a larger sensor is the way to go.

          However, I find with f/1.8 on a 50 mm lens attached to a micro-4/3 camera (a sensor about a quarter the size of the full-frame. The lens becomes a '100 mm' equivalent in this case) that when the focus the nose of a person, the ears are visibly slightly out-of-focus, even through the electronic viewfinder! Well, maybe you and your subjects like that kind of 'air-brush/glow' effect!

          Different lenses have different 'blurring' characteristics, so called 'bokeh' (well, I think bokeh is a bit over-rated. Surely there should be a Photoshop/Darktable plugin to simulate any arbitrary bokeh for those of us who prefer take our photographs nice and sharp! Obviously I'm not a head-and-shoulders portraiture photographer!)

        •  

          Very well documented there. It will definately help me to choose the lenses i want. I am very thankful to you for providing such a good advise on choosing the lenses. Since price will be a factor in choosing the lenses could you recommend anything under $300 as an entry level lense with good sharpness and details. Would this 50mm fit in that category or should i be looking at other lenses from Sigma and Tamron ?

        •  

          Considering your budget of under $300 and your preference for taking portraits which generally require a shallower depth of field with an emphasis on smooth tone transition, I think you will do a lot worse than getting the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G. It is compact and lightweight, has good low-light performance and features Nikon's ultra-quiet Silent Wave Motor (any noise has an unsettling effects on your photographic subject). The only downside is there is no image stabilisation (not a problem if you are using a tripod and cable/timed-released shuttle). If you can stretch your budget a bit more, there is also the f/1.4 version with, reportedly, a better bokeh.

          If you are looking for low depth of field, don't bother with 35mm lenses. It is too wide for low depth of field. I have the Sigma 30mm F1.4, good lens, but very similar DOF as 50mm F1.8. Not so good for portraits, because you have to get too close to the subject(Big nose effect).

    •  

      It depends on what kind of photography you in to. Nikon 24-70 f2.8 are great alround lens but bit pricy. You can get the third party for half price of nikon.

    •  

      Get the 50mm F1.8G. Quieter, and faster focusing.

  •  

    OMG! this has to be the cheapest price I've seen. I bought mine when it first came out and paid over $2,200 (body only).

  •  

    What about GST? Will you get slappped by the customs for an additional 150$?

    •  

      yeah about 10% by customs, but if you're lucky you might get thru without having to pay a single cent. Still with the $150 additional import tax, its still cheap. :)

    •  

      nope… brought mine when the price was $1850… like most of these shops, they put a lower price for you. so no GST !!
      this is seriously cheap.
      good delivery too… mine was delivered in 4 days.

      •  

        thanks. do you have to ask, or is it something they do themselves? i.e. creative accounting

        •  

          they just do a bit of creative accounting for you (I didn't have to asked, but i did asked for quick delivery)…. but if you want to be sure, just chat using they "live" online chat box… pretty good respond during business hours.

      •  

        Sevenofnine, what can you tell us about oil spot issue… Is it something that heavily present on your D600 copy?

        •  

          haven't seen anything like that, i didn't even know there was an issue, (will look it up). Took around 1000 shots so far, no problems. I shoot lots of macro, so if there is a problem, i would have seen it by now.!

          Hold your horses mr jumping into conclusion too fast.
          No offense, mate. But when someone starts telling me about stealing from the governmets (not only ours but any) I am just smiling.
          We are here not up to steal anything from anyone, we are just trying to optimise our expenses.

          I am not a Nikonian, not a full size sensor follower either, but it must be a very good deal.

  •  

    Built-in GPS, and to a lesser extent Wi-Fi, like the Canon 6D would be so much better.

    If there's issues with dust spots or oil spots, will Nikon Australia look after you, or at least a reasonably priced service option?

    •  

      Nah, all warranty will be via e global, same with all other grey imports.

    •  

      You can go with an extended warranty options like every third shop provides i.e Mack International warranty which has two options Standard and Diamond. Else if you have home and contents insurance that will cover it as well :D .. You know what I mean ;) Right !

    A common concern people have with this camera are dust and oil spots on the sensor.

    There are many forum posts on the issue, just Google it! Aside from that, it's a great camera!

    Aside from this discount, they (the retailer) seem to have had the lowest pricing for the d600 - http://spot.lofico.com.au/product.php?product_name=Nikon%20D...

    •  

      very nice find with the prices.

    •  

      Ive had mine for over 4 months and no oil spots on the sensor. But if it does appear in future, just take it to Nikon and get them to clean it :) . It is silly of Nikon to have this issue in the first place, but hey we're all humans.

      •  

        Nikon Australia might charge a fee due to the grey import's warranty…?

        •  

          Nikon Australia will not touch grey import cameras, even if you are willing to pay.
          Mate of mine bought one (different model) & when he contacted Nikon Australia they told him to deal with the seller, didn't want anything to do with it.

        •  

          I've seen couple of instances where nikon repaired a grey import with no problems. Owner just have to pay, that's all.

    This deal was part of the deals posted a few days ago by the eGlobal rep:

    http://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/91295

    For those who may be travelling overseas (TRS) and not willing to wait, I'd recommend looking at DDP:

    http://www.d-d-photographics.com.au/products/Nikon-D600-Digi...

    They have stock in Sydney so there would be no issues about shipping delays or customs. The price is relatively comparable with eGlobal if you take away the GST.

      http://cameraparadise.com/Buy-Nikon-D600-Digital-SLR-Camera-...

      $1504.04 AUD.
      In stock.
      Delivery 1-3 Working days.

      No additional tax guarantee:
      "We 100% guarantee that you will not be charged any GST or VAT. Any additional charges will be billed to us directly. The price you pay to us is all you have to pay to receive the order."

      Warranty:
      "Your order on below non-waterproof products are protected by our CameraParadise.com Door-to-Door Warranty for 18 months. Once your request is confirmed, we will send a courier to your door, pick up the malfunctioning unit, and have it sent back to our office directly; all of these without you paying a cent!"

      Sounds like a better deal to me.. rather than risk copping a fine from customs.

      I've got nothing to do with cameraparadise.. but I've been keeping an eye on it for a while (lurking until my camera of choice gets a special slapped on it).

    •  

      I've bought from DDP before, great prices & delivery IF the item is in stock.
      I ordered 3 Nikon lenses late in December - first one one arrived within 48hrs of ordering - brilliant!
      2 others I am still waiting for them.
      So make sure the item is in stock before you pay for it.

    gezz, so expensive for a camera, but maybe cheap for d600. no such budget for dslr

    •  

      Is it a bargain? It all depends.
      Definitely - if you are already a Full-Frame DSLR user who owns a number of good lenses and is looking to upgrade.
      Otherwise, it's debatable. IMHO the FF format DSLR is fast approaching its end of evolution, the future belongs to a smaller format (APS-C, Four-Thirds & etc) and mirrorless Compact System Cameras.
      Except for the Pros, few people like to lug along a few kilos of camera kits, and the hassle of setting it up for a few shots usually means it will end up not being used much.
      Let's be honest, at the end of the day, unless you are a pro, the difference between the pictures you take with one of these cameras and a more compact one is insignificant to justify the massive outlay and the heavy burden.

      •  

        I heard something similar from someone else recently. What would you recommend then for someone who wants to take beautiful pics, a few fancy shots, but overall make it convenient and easy.

        •  

          While I'm no expert in photography, this question depends on a number of important factors:
          1. Your budget bracket
          2. The type of pictures you like to take most (landscape, portraits, wildlife, motion, macro, art filters & etc)
          3. The size of camera you are comfortable with handling (weight & dimension)
          4. Your preference on user interface (technical/intermediate/novice, fixed settings/highly customisable, buttons/screen-based control)
          5. Your likelihood of acquiring extra lenses for special purposes
          6. How much post processing you do with the pictures you have taken
          7. How you make use of your pictures - size of viewing screen and/or size of prints
          8. Your preference on the look of the camera (if any)

          Grab a Nikon D7000 with a 18-200mm + 35mm prime lense.

          It will be probably the only two lenses you will ever need + the D7000 is an affordable top notch camera.

      • +1 vote

        I had the opportunity to use a mirrorless APS-C compact for my 3 week trip (first time a held DSLR quality in my hands), I thought that was good until I used a FF camera, only used it for 5 minutes and the samples I took blew my APS-C camera away.

        So no, it doesn't take a pro to see the difference.

        •  

          The current (third) generation of mirrorless CSCs offer vastly improved image quality compared to earlier generations.
          But then again, perhaps you are a much more accomplished shooter than most DSLR users.
          I did not say that it takes a Pro to see the difference but that it takes a Pro to create enough difference to justify the massive outlay (lens and all). It really is a simple case of diminishing returns - in my view, the expense and effort on these expensive and heavy cameras are justfied only if you are able to milk every ounce of performance out of them.

          To netsurfer,

          I bought D600 over D800.
          Why not Canon? - I have quite a few Nikon lenses & accessories that work perfectly with D600.
          For what I do Nikon system is much better for me.
          Why not D800?
          1. Price - about $1100.
          2. Ergonomics - in my hand D600 feels much better.
          3. Weight - I have a shoulder injury so any weight reduction is beneficial.
          4. Higher frame rate - D600 is faster the D800
          5. Resolution for what I do I do not need 36.6 mp. D800 files are huge- you need a lot of hard disk space for back ups.
          6. Because I wanted to. ;-)
          These are just few reasons why D600 is better for ME.

          To jakentta,

          Well you better tell that to all the professional photographers that use D600.
          I thought that photographer's talent, then lenses, then body would be the difference between great photo & a crap one.
          The camera is just a tool.

    lol! do you think the price is going to go up?

  •  

    I've seen 1996 US$ for D600 + kit lens + accessories on BH last Christmas :) But this is definitely a bargain!!

  • +3 votes

    This is a Grey Import. The price does not include postage (it comes from Hong Kong). Probably close to $60.
    Beware of warranty because there have been quite a number of people on Nikon forums having problems with the D600.
    I have a D7000 and find it a great camera.
    D600 is Full frame which means lenses (FX) cost heaps more than the DX lenses.
    Buy it at your own risk is my advice.

    •  

      Not all FX lenses are expensive. 50mm f/1.8 D prime is cheaper than the 18mm-105mm DX kit lens.

      Also, one slight advantage of the Nikon FX system (compared to Canon) is that they can use the DX lenses if you really want to (though in cropped mode, the megapixel count will drop).

    Great deal! Got mine for $1969 but with 2 year Nikon Australia warranty.

    Thanks OP. After getting the approval from my CFO I finally ordered one. Will be a replacement for my ancient D70. Now let the begging begin for some additional money to cover 24-70, 14-24 aand maybe 70-200 (i have 80-200 already). :)

  •  

    Holy balls that's cheap.

    Too rich for my blood though - shall stick with the lesser model (D3200) unless I ever decide to go pro. Just can't justify this spend to the Mrs…

  •  

    I have several Nikon dslr bodies, both DX & full frame and here is some advice,

    You will always need 2 bodies so buy a cheap DX one first, experiment and then buy a FF. the 3200 or even the 3100 are awesome camera bodies & a much better way to get into slr photography IMO. You can shoot professionally with it as its the photographer and not the camera they are paying for and the 3x00 line are capable of quality work. Then get a FF if you then think you need FF but don't be surprised if you prefer the images from your old camera better! FF takes some tweaking to get the image any better than DX cameras can, it needs better glass, primes Nd these cost! You should consider the investment carefully and if your not making money out of your hobbie then (über rich wont care) then just stick with DX or even a pocket camera (or last night I used my mobile phones camera, the best camera is the one you actually have with you after all)

    Good luck and enjoy, I've used eglobal and the power recharges need adaptors FYI which is a shame…

  •  

    I recommend the new Nikon D5200 as its almost as good as the much more expensive 7000 and significantly better than the 3XXX Nikon line of DX cameras for not much more in price…

    •  

      I think the D7000 and the D5200 are almost the same price (body only; grey market). D7000 can be delivered for 747 and the cheapest D5200 I could see was 720 delivered

  •  

    Great deal for grey import camera.
    At that price it is definitely a bargain.
    Nikon D600 is fantastic, highly recommended.
    I bought mine just before Christmas from Hardly Normal for $1959.87
    Just be aware lots of people say eGlobal & DWI are the same company - if it's true get ready for (possibly) an unpleasant ride if something goes wrong with the camera. Most grey companies offer great prices & delivery, but some suck big time if something goes wrong & you require repair.
    As for FF it wipes DX in just about every respect, especially low light capability, dynamic range, resolution, etc.
    the question is is the FF camera right for you?
    If you just take family snapshots, don't really care about learning about photography, want something light & compact DX is much better for you.
    Full frame gear is bigger & usually much heavier the DX gear.You WILL notice the difference, especially if you carry it around for a full day.
    Also buying FF gear WILL NOT automatically make you a better photographer, sometimes the opposite.
    It will also cost you more - full frame camera will definitely test your lenses. If they are crap/average you will notice the lack of quality much more in FF then DX.
    So you need to get good quality lenses, but some of the cheaper ones are more then enough eg, 24-85mm zoom is surprisingly good. Tamron lenses are also excellent & cost much less then Nikon.
    The bottom line - great deal, thanks OP, GREAT camera, but is it camera for you?
    If you can afford it (and the lenses), willing to take time to improve your techinques /learn more about photography - go for it!

    PS. IMPORTANT! Be aware some D600's suffer from sever dust issue - the sensor might need cleaning much more then other cameras. Reportedly the fix is on the way, but for now the dust is an issue.

  •  

    the d800 at that price would be insane ;-)

    Not really a bargain compared to other grey market companies if shipping considered, and the need to buy an extended warranty.

    Be aware when buying such a camera you're going to need to fork out significant cash on lenses and access.

    I'm more than happy to go grey market and take a risk sub-$1k, but $1.5k is a lot to blow if you get a faulty one (that eglobal won't accept is faulty).

    •  

      Including insured shipping their price is $1,536.98
      Can you find it cheaper? If not it is a bargain.
