The Nikon D610 Excellent
The Nikon D610 Excellent
I bought the camera in July of 2014 and love it, it so good fast and built well. I can only say I really love my D610 it brings me back to the good old days of 35 mm film my F801s, FE, FM2, FA and N2020 to name some of my Cameras. Also I had to say a D70s and a D7000.
My D7000 I traded it in for something else. I want to by another D610 or may look at the D750 but to say I like the BM-14 LCD Cover for the D610 and maybe there is no Cover for the D750 so I will see what I buy. I like to have less moving parts like the LCD on my D610 but have to think and talk to the store to make up my mind.
I am looking to have two (2) FX cameras to use. I am also thinking of the D800 – D810 for a Second or main Body Camera.
To say I hope the next camera that replaces the D610 has a LCD cover I find it to be a good add on to protect the LCD. I have my camera bouncing on my chest and so on.
I would recommend to any one the D610.

This is one of the best SLRs ever made. Strong, reliable, accurate and with incredible image quality.

Was quite surprised with it's performance. Works very well in low light, creating crisp sharp images. The body is light weight and well balanced. With controls that you can still use in AUTO mode, or program your own settings.
I have used the D800, and in comparing them. I have discovered unless you are a professional photographer and need the very best. The D610 will suit all of your needs, and more.
I truly enjoy working with it.

Quality Images at an affordable price
I started out with the D5100. I went to college to learn photography, but I still consider myself a serious enthusiast rather than a total professional. While I was in school, we learned on the Nikon D90. The main reason for switching from DX to FX is the sensor. I was skeptical about purchasing the D610 because of the reviews on this site. However, after a few of the more recent reviews were up, I went ahead and got the D610. I was amazed! For one, my D5100 crapped out at ISO 400-600. I noticed it when I was shooting outdoor sports last year. The sun would go down just a tad and I would have to bump up my ISO. Instant Grain. It was horrible.Then I was put into a few indoor situations where lighting was very poor. I was using my 50mm 1.8 with it wide open and still had grainy photos because I was still having to bump up my ISO. I had enough. This camera can take photos up to ISO 6400 with still barely any grain. It performs very well in low light situations. I know that the glass you choose is a major factor in your shots, but I've used zoom lenses, prime lenses and old school manual lenses on this camera. The quality is amazing. You won't be disappointed with this camera. The price is extremely fair. I would say if you're a serious enthusiast/hobbyist that is looking to get into the full frame world, this is the perfect camera. If you feel like you need a little more, I've heard excellent things about the D750. However, for me, the D750 was not worth the extra $800 or so dollars. I have been putting that money I saved into upgrading to FX glass. You can still use your DX glass on this camera, but there is a DX mode with a crop factor. I've taken photos with my 40mm Micro Nikkor that have turned out very well on this camera. I would recommend this camera to anyone. I have not had a single issue with the camera. Get it while it's at a great price!! It does take a little bit of getting used to if you switch from a camera that doesn't have the dials in the same place. A lot of the DX cameras have different dial modes for the settings. That was the hardest thing to get used to, but once I got used to it I realized how hard it was to control my camera in manual on the D5100. It's much easier to change my shutter speed and aperture on the D610.

Great FX DSLR
This is a great camera and its price is about right on what it offers. Techincally, this camera is what most people need with decent FX lens for photography or the ones that take "photography seriously."
