The Ryda Web store shows a listing for the Nikon D600 camera in a body-only configuration, with no bundled lens, for a $2699 price. Nikon Australia does not release recommended retail pricing for its products, but instead lets retailers choose pricing at their discretion.

Industry rumour site Nikon Rumors believes the Ryda listing is not credible. The site's founder believes the store is jumping the gun before the official announcement, to secure pre-orders from eager fans: "Their price is not correct. This is not a leak, they are just guessing and trying to get some traffic."

The D600 will sit below the recently-released D800 and D800E in Nikon's digital SLR line-up; it's the cheapest and most basic full-frame digital SLR ever to be released by the company. It's a legitimate successor to the long-selling D700 digital SLR, which was released in July 2008.

If Ryda's web listing is to believed, the D600 has a 24.7-megapixel full frame imaging sensor in Nikon's FX format. A 39-point autofocus system, 4fps continuous-shooting burst mode, and 'small and lightweight body' are other selling points.

Ryda's web team have posted their thoughts on the D600's release, and their expectations of pricing and release date:

As you may or may not be aware on the 13th September 2012 Nikon will be releasing what we are willing to call 'the best new camera to market in a decade'. For too long now full frame DSLR cameras have been extremely expensive and for the semi amateur or enthusiast all but out of reach. Nikon recently released the Nikon D800 DSLR camera and we have not been able to keep up with demand and at the time we called it the best camera to hit the market in many years.

The company says they don't have many details to share with customers yet, but will update the site as an official announcement is made:

We don't have a lot more information at this time but will make it available along with Nikon authorised imaging and videos as soon as they become available.

We are fairly confident of being able to supply stock of this camera within 7 days but if the release of the big brother to this camera the D800 is any guide you would want to have your order in very quickly.

NOTE: The price suggested above is only a guide and we do not believe the new Nikon D600 will exceed the price displayed what we are hoping is to reduce it considerably.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
