The D800 is awesome! The D810 is even better! These cams are the current pinnacle of Nikon DSLRs. But what if you could get an equivalent or better image quality in a smaller, lighter, less expensive camera? Todays 1" sensors are outperforming the DSLRs from just a few years ago. Namely D300, D200, D90. It's coming.

too bad they dont have a good mirroless camera yet that can compete wth some of the other brands. I am looking at two sony now the a6000 and the rx100 111 which has a 24-70 lens and a viewfinder but is not interchangeable.

Both sonys are good cams. The A7 is even better. I just got to play with the newest A7S and I was running around shooting images at over 400,000 ISO. While not perfect they were at least usable. Nikons mirrorless One system can't compete with the larger sensor Sonys on a pixel level they can outperform them with speed in AF, FPS, slow motion video, all in a smaller package.

The A7 is nice for sure but I wanted smaller than my two NoIkons to carry and in weight. The rx100 Mk111 is too small for me to handle so I went with the A6000 which is smaller than my d610 and d7100 and much lighter for show shots and meet coverage- Since I only shoot portable stuff it made more sense

Nice. Sony is coming up strong. The A6000 is a good example of Sony improving their line. The NEX 6 was technically a great cam but the menu system made it a nightmare if you wanted to change settings.
Edit: the A6000 fixed all that and then some.

I used the Nikon 50MM and 35MM 1,8G Primes with an adapter yesterday and got some nice shots on the lens. it is a good option with the a6000 for using the Nikon primes and manual focus.

Just shared a bunch of pics in the Canon forum.  Just as I had made up my mind to switch to Canon due to skin tones, I feel like I've shot some of my best pictures yet.  What an absolute bargain the D600 is...

I only use one filter on my Nikon. A Moose Peterson CPF. Usually CPFs renders the image color temperature a lot cooler.  The Moose Peterson has a built in 81A warming filter

and the pics come out a lot warmer
