Re: D600 + D800 divide by 2 = D700
In reply to CFynn, 9 months ago

Nikon has to address two important things with the D610 if it is not just a rumour.

1. Demonstrate that the dust / oil issue is fixed - indirect or direct claim that is enough to convince buyers

2. Compete with 6D where people can appreciate the advantages of the features that makes D600/D610 better in paper than 6D and not worry about dust/oil

And to do these two they must price it well - For UK say around £1500 new to start with. A new 6D costs less than £1300 with cash back. People married to Nikon system will find that price point perfect as long as the worry on dust is gone.

For converts and new owners, £1500 could be a good balance between price and features.

A new D800 costs £1949 in UK hence D610 cannot be released at the £1975 price point which was the D600 price at release .

It is becoming a waiting game...

I am not really interested with GPS and Wifi. Just a good full frame Nikon a nudge below the mighty D800. The D600's sensor is already awesome, so just a bit of quality control would be nice.

Would be glad if they add 51pt AF, ,1/8000 shutter speed and a 1/250 sync speed and price it another £200 more, but it would be close to the D800 price and not sure if Nikon would do that as a business.

I have 3 FX lenses (50mm F1.8G, 85 mm F1.8G and tamron 70-300 VC) and a D5100. On upgrading, I would keep the D5100 as backup.

Bring it on Nikon.
