I'm seriously in doubt about my next change
Jun 9, 2014


I have been using Nikon DSLR for many years now, D50-D80-D300S-D700 and now D600.

My D600 is seriously suffering from ongoing oil on the sensor, even after cleaning, so I would like to change it.

Nikon is not offering something in it's line that is appealing to me, D610 has still the small AF area, the D800 is great but all of the shops I've been to seem to discourage me from buying one, bad build quality, pure studio camera, etc... Let alone the D4 or the DF.

The problem is that I invested in good glass a year ago, Nikon 24-70 2.8 + 70-200 2.8 VR2 + 50mm 1.8. Changing to Canon would cost me around 3200£ only for the upgrade to a 5D + all the same glass.

So, taking into account that I don't like the D610, what should I do? I only take stills, single shot, no sports but sometimes in bad light. I only shoot in Manual and Raw, so nothing fancy required. I tought about the D800 as I have the machine to handle these files and the storage to store them.

I'm lost ...
