Excerpt: I haven't gotten to use it much so I can't talk about image quality. I am a nikon user so this camera, for the money, would be a great buy if it focused properly. I guess i got a bad one but this makes 2/2 nikons with poor autofocus out of the box.
Excerpt: I bought this camera to change my nikon d7000, that was great. I was very excited to have a FF camera, but after a few days I noticed that pictures had a green color in the LCD screen. I read that this problem is common in the d810. Nikon is having a lot of problems.
Summary: I bought this camera around 2 weeks back since i was going on a vacation to couple of scenic places. I was hesitant buying this camera because some people had oil spots on sensor issues with D600 and also D610. But i tried to trust nikon that they might have fixed the issue.
The two stars review is not for the camera but ...

Summary: The two stars review is not for the camera but for the bundle. The 18-55mm lens is DX, which means that it is not full frame. Therefore the FX function of the camera cannot be used with this lens. The advertiser should have made this clear.
Excerpt: I bought the D610 after reading reviews that said Nikon had fixed the sensor oil/dust spoting problem that existed on the D600. Unfortunatly the problem still exists on some D610's and mine is one of them. After around 2,000 shots I noticed spots from something on my sensor.
Dust issue not really fixed !! Nikon wants only sales, not customers

Summary: I am a veteran Nikon user, since the days when they had only Film SLRs. When they screwed up on the D600, I was upset. But then they said they fixed it with the D610. Mistakes happen, I understand, so I upgraded to the D610.
Buy it from B&H instead. Same price plus free battery and memory card.

Summary: I'm a longtime Amazon customer but they screwed up on this one. I purchased a new camera and what they sent me was a used one with 769 shutter clicks! Not even factory refurbished. Fingerprints all over it. Nothing sealed. I sent it back and ordered it from B&H Photo.
Auto-focus doesn't work ..and the dust saga continues. Where's the quality control NIKON?

Summary: I have been a D5000 user for the last 4 years. Decided to upgrade recently and after researching the D7100, the D610 (and it's predecessor the D600) as well as the D800, I settled on the D610.
Excerpt: I had such high hoped for the Nikon D610 and after many months of sitting idle between cameras and looking at the Canon 6D I took the plunge…and now it’s going back. Why you ask – “spots” – about 15 of them all over my pictures after extensive 2 days of shooting.
