You will find lots of discussions and suggestions in the Photography forum.

Remember you are choosing a system - camera, lenses, accessories - and not just a camera.

What whiteway says is sound advice.

The D600 does sound very good: http://www.dxomark.com/index.php/Publications/DxOMark-Reviews/Nikon-D600-sets-high-bar-for-sensor-image-quality/Comparisons

The D600 is brand new technology, the 5DII is a few years old now. I'd go for the new technology if the price was right, which it seems to be with the D600.

Your choice, but the D600 as pointed out above does get great ratings and it has 9 cross type autofocus points vs. the 5dii having only one. Nikon also seems to have an edge in its sensor technology (vs. Canon).

Unless you are heavily invested in other Canon gear, lenses and flashes etc, I'd probably go for the D600.

Nikon vs Canon


Apple vs Android

Both cameras produce similar quality and size images. I have 5DmkII but I am not sure which one I would pick if I was just starting (probably Nikon if I could get over the fact that it is built for left handed people and I am right handed).


Why choose D600:


- MUCH BETTER auto focus. I shoot a lot of real life situations where I have no time or opportunity to set everything perfect and I must shoot from my hip. Except for the center focus point all others (and not even many of other point) are almost useless.
- Nikon uses widely available (and cheaper) SD cards as opposed to the CF.
- Built in flash which I missed more than once on my 5DmkII.
- Wider exposure compensation of ±5EV compared to Canon ±2EV which I wish I had in a real life situation.
- More options for exposure and WB bracketing.


Why Canon 5DmkII:


-micro focus adjustment for individual lenses. Get optimum performance from your lens.
-self cleaning sensor. I used to clean sensor on my 5D very often, not so much anymore.

The 5dMk2 was a revolutionary camera when it came out.....4 years ago....I wish I had bought one (nikon user here)  Nikon didn't really have a rival to it until the D800 came out earlier this year. Canon are now where Nikon were in trying to play catch up.


I bet in pretty much every way the sensor on the D600 is better then the 5Dmk2. As for build quality the Canon may have the edge still, The D800 I use is a step up, a small one, in  build quality and features but is expensive to run terms of storage and fast PC etc.
