You'd think the duffers at Nikon would have anticipated that the large RAW file size would serve as a deterrent to prospective buyers and come out with a micro-RAW capability that Canon has. But, nooo. That would be expecting too much of them.

If you enjoy staring at AF points clustered like a Tampax sanitary pad, go for the D610. With the exception of its sensor, it's a watered-down camera with a watered-down price that befits watered-down expectations.

My advice if you anticipate trying out one: prepare yourself to be disappointed in advance and prepare well; then when you actually handle the D6xx series, you just might manage to handle it long enough to keep your food down. No guarantees, though.

something has made you very cynical this morning....

never seen so much hyperbole in so few paragraphs! (keep your food down is a little extreme don't you think?~)

hope your day improves.

There is a very fine line between 'hobby' and 'mental illness.' :'!':
