Summary: I bought a used D610. I knew it was a gamble cause a lot of people were still having issues with the oil spots. I took the chances and it was fine for the first half of the day. I was getting some test shots and then voila!! Oil spots!!!
Excerpt: I purchased the Nikon D610 when it first came out. This camera sounded great and I was thinking I wouldn't have to deal with the issues that previously existed with the D600. I was wrong. After a few shots, I've been plagued by the sensor dust and oil spot issue. Want to take a shot above f8?
Excerpt: Bought D600 year back...returned and exchanged it two times because I had dust/ oil spot issue on D600...got third D600 ..Used my D600 for couple of months and found oil spots on it...contacted nikon...spent two weeks without camera..as it in Nikon LA service center..
Excerpt: I am a professional photographer and have used Nikon for years. I upgraded a old D300 to this body. I had heard of oil spots showing up on the D600 and the issue was suppose to be resolved with the 610.
theoretical good features-the worst customer service ever

Summary: The camera D610 was bought in amazon.com in February, it was okay but with 1200 shoots, it started to have some spots in the images, always in the same area, and ruining my pics from Greek Islands.
Excerpt: I am commenting on the sales process. The camera body itself, I can't tell because it is too soon to spot manufacturing problems related to the oil leaks and ERR messages and bricking that have been notorious with the 600.I am very worried about a return because I refused to accept the "kit".
Pros: Good Image Quality
Cons: Lag / Shutter Delay, Noisy At High ISO, Poor In Low Light, Useless Video Sound-
Excerpt: I bought the D610 last month expecting to have resolved the dust/oil issue of the previous model. I was very happy with it, but I returned it yesterday due to too many oil spots I found after 500 photographs taken. I've attached one of the shots. Hope this is helpful.
I have completely lost faith in Nikon with the D610

Summary: After having some challenges with my last Nikon (D300), I thought it might have been an isolated issue. I was very excited to order and receive my Nikon D610 thinking the issues with the D600 were resolved. However, out of the box, the viewfinder was completely blurry.....couldn't see a thing.
