The long rumored Nikon D600 was officially introduced yesterday but unfortunately not at the $1500 as expected, but at $2100. I am sure many will be disappointed, but I think it's still a significant camera that will signal the start of affordable full frame cameras to come. When the first consumer full frame camera, the Canon 5D, introduced in 2005, was $3300.
With the D600 out, I am sure Canon won't let Nikon steal the lower end full frame market share, and will have a model (6D?) to counter the D600. I also believe Sony will have a lower priced full frame other than the A99 sometime in 2013.
Exciting times, even if I can't afford one.
