Whilst you’ll be able to pick up the Nikon D600 from early as the coming Friday you’ll have to wait until December for the EOS 6D. Neither of the cameras are completely game changing but offer a more affordable full frame camera. Neither camera is going to replace a professional DSLR but for landscape/portrait photographers, a lightweight FX camera will sound attractive despite their relative lack of clout.

Both cameras are available to pre-order through the Castle Cameras website with £100 deposit. Both lists are a first-come first-serve basis so be quick to get the first batch.
