Excerpt: I have purchased the D-610 about 6 weeks ago and am very pleased with the all around quality. I replaced my D-700 with this camera and the photos are better than the D-700! No dust or oil spots as it appears fixed. I am extremely happy with this Nikon as I have been with all the Nikon photo equipment I have purchased over the years. My experience with Nikon has been A1 quality and extreme durability.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Quiet, Tilt /Swivel LCD
Excerpt: Everything I need and non of the extras. 24 MP is more than enough and its full frame. The DR is great and the build is excellent. Its not a D700 body and doesnt have its AF. I wouldve prefer the AF of the D700 on this camera, but oh well. But enough with geek stuff...its a great camera. As for the oil and dust, no problem at all. I had a speck of dust on my prism and mirror, but nothing a cleaning can fix.
Summary: I bought this camera 15 months ago to replace my D600 that Nikon refunded my money on. I consider it the best value in Nikon FX. It has no vices, it is well built, the image quality is exactly the same as the much more expensive D750. The AF works fine, and it's frame coverage works great for me. I use this versatile workhorse for everything from my day to day casual shooting to serious astrophotography work. It just does it all.
Excerpt: I use this camera for portraits and events and it has worked flawlessly. The images are very sharp and the skin tone is spot on. The quality of the high ISO images is extremely good and even at 5000 ISO, the images are great.
Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Good Image Quality, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD
Excerpt: I'm photo enthusiast who was looking for replacement for my old Nikon D50. I waited for the new d7200 and couldn't decide between it and D610, after reading the spec of new DX Nikon Flagship I found the D610 still great camera. The price is right and with all the extra stuff it's a steal.
Pros: Good Image Quality, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD
Excerpt: In the end of day, are you making money as photographer or simply a die hard enthusiast? This camera is what most people need with decent FX lens.If you simply have less than 2000 actuation on your DSLR, you made a wrong investment. I moved from d5100 DX to this bad boy. The d810 was in my price range as well, but it wasnt practical since Im not traveling around the world and abusing it in every way possible. I didnt need the extra features and a tougher body.
Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD
