Fifth Best Camera

My first digital camera arrived in 2002.

It was the best digital unit ever only because I had owned no others. The only problem was that it was terrible. I returned it after only 36 hours.

My next one, a Canon 1Ds, was a solid winner. I used it daily for three years. As time passed, a series of even better models came along. I gladly traded up every other year.

This Nikon D600 was part of that upgrade chain. It arrived in 2012. Notwithstanding a couple of bugs, this Nikon was stellar. Based on chronology, it was the fifth best camera ever.

Its successor, the D610, served me well as both a primary and backup unit. With its service now complete, it will be heading for the sale block.
