D610 - what is in there?
Jan 26, 2014

At the risk of being labeled a troll, I'm trying to understand what is going on in the Nikon D610 versus the Sony a7.  I was a long time Nikon owner dating back to my first Nikkormat FTN in 1970 through a D300.

I compare the A7 and the D610 and the features are very similar, the most obvious items requiring some bulk are the flash and larger battery.  Both bodies are built of magnesium.  And certainly my D300 was very durable as I dragged it all over the world.

But what is going on in the D610, or what isn't going on in the A7, that makes the D610 almost twice as large?  I'm not trying to start a battle of quality, just trying to understand what makes the Nikon almost twice as large, both dimensionally and by weight.

Thanks for the insights.
