What appear to be leaked images of Nikon’s rumored D600 full-frame DSLR are showing up on Chinese site Xitek.com, showing the same angled grip and shutter from Nikon’s D4 and D800 bodies. The photos also reveal an autofocus motor, which was rumored to be missing on the (presumably) lower-priced D600. Without an AF motor Nikon DSLR bodies can’t autofocus older, non-AF-S lenses, such as the 50mm f/1.4 AF-D the D600 is pictured with.
Nikon Rumors is expecting the D600 to launch with a 24.7-megapixel FX (i.e., full-frame) sensor, top ISO sensitivity of 25,600, 39 autofocus points, and be capable of shooting 30fps 1080p video. Most importantly, the D600’s price is rumored to be near $1,500. If true, we could see a lot of people finally making the switch to full frame this year.
