Excerpt: Cameta Camera did a great job in fulfilling the order. The only problem is after five weeks of ownership I had to send it back to Nikon. The remote shutter mode does not operate properly. Wonder if there is "final inspection" at Nikon.
Excerpt: I just bought this camera (upgrade from D90). I just wanted to let people know that mine has a low level noise rattle coming from the onboard flash when the camera is slowly rocked back and forth. It doesn't matter if the flash is down or up.
Excerpt: Your average DSLR. Nothing to write home about. Not the cheapest of cameras. Sort of worth your money. However, not worth every penny. I expected much more from NIKON for $2000. I should have went with the D4S or even the NIKON 800E. Oh well I still will be keeping this camera.
Pros: Easy To Use, Large Clear LCD
Cons: Poor Image Quality, Poor Image Stabilization, Short Battery Life
Summary: Have been using DX Nikons since the D70, and was ready to be blown away by the difference in FX with the 610, but quite the opposite was the case. Aside from the added pixels per image and a slightly more spacious viewfinder, I could not find an additional $800-900-worth of value over the D7000 I...
Summary: This is an initial review of this kit - be mindful this was after one day (7hrs) of making it a point to go out and take practice shots and to better familiarize myself with Nikon. Bear in mind that others that are coming from a Sony might find this more helpful or anyone who has never used a Nikon.
Summary: A LOT of research lead me to this camera, I chose this over the D800 to get the two user modes. I'm picking up photography after 30 years away, and I wanted a good FX format. The first camera came, and I could not get the viewfinder to come in focus.
Summary: I really, really, liked this camera and loved the photos. I had the D600, but due to sensor issues, Nikon refunded my money for the D600. When the D610 came out, I waited and it seemed like the sensor problem was resolved, so I bought it.
Excerpt: I know this is targeted at newcomers to the FX and full-frame market, but I was really disappointed with the focusing system and overall feel of the D610 coming from a D700. My D700 felt super solid, and I love it, but I wanted to get a newer camera that at least had some video abilities.
Pros: Good Image Quality, High ISO Performance, Quiet
Cons: 14000 Max Shutter Speed, Poor autofocus, Unprofessional Body
Excerpt: I bought this camera so that I could have two cameras to use and not fuss over switching lenses. My other camera was a Nikon D300 with a Tamron 200-500mm zoom lens. (Stolen a few days before this one arrived.
Pros: Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Quiet
