Is there any D600/D610 unit affected by the green tint plague as D800 and D4 are?

I would like to know if the dreaded green tint  affectis the jpegs taken in AWB with the D600/D610 cameras. What about D600/D610's LCDs? iA respectfully request to the raw shooters: Please ignore this post if all you have to say is "shooting raw or Custom/Preset WB solves the problem".

No green tint on my D800. On the LCD, yes slightly, but not on the pictures. I wouldn't want to use the camera LCD for color proofing anyway

The only green tint issue I've seen on the d800 is shooting above 6400 ISO. Blacks turn green.

Many thanks to all of you replying to my question. It's good to know that D610 is free of problems. This could also mean that Nikon is back on the good track with the D610. In my opinion D610 is a competent FF camera at a very good price.

No green tint here. I must admit I do like the price and file size of the D610, I think 24MP is about perfect...Brent

Not sure if there is a general consensus that the D800 produces green-tinted images -- but in any case, I've not seen any with my D800.

There appears to be a light green-ish tint with Lightroom Nikon "Camera" profiles when compared to the standard Adobe profiles, but this has been the case with all LR profiles for Nikon cameras in Adobe Raw, and is certainly not a problem with the camera. OOC JPEGs etc don't have any green tint, in my experience, nor do shots processed with LR and Adobe profiles nor with Nikon's own Capture NX.

Does your D800 have a green tint in the (JPEG?) pictures?

No green tint with my D800. I think you have invented this "plague".

Yeah, the wording of the question is very troll like, but giving the benefit of the doubt...

There was no plague, if there was even a problem it was subtle.  I have both a D800 and D4 and was/am happy, and noticed no significant difference after the firmware updates.

And besides -- anyone using the back LCD as an authoritative check for white balance has more camera than they need with any of these cameras. 

I don't have a D6xx, but the premise of your question is flawed from the beginning.

Please post an example - some of my images have purple tint on the highlights - but then most of the digital photos have a bit purple tint when pushed.  May be an error with your lens, not camera.

Hi,

Just bought a D610 and I noticed that the LCD has a very green-ish cast to it. My old D300 was much more balanced and gave better feedback on the colours. Not a biggie since the images (incl JPGs) are OK, but rather annoying...

A fix for this??
