Maybe it's value will come back as an antigue ;-)
A little bit cleaner, a little bit faster, than the D600, the D610 delivers on the promise of its predecessor: a full frame enthusiast's camera, packing a 24 mpixel sensor, that many prefer over the D8xx sensor. I like having both.
The most versatile DSLR on the market today. Its AF, ISO, FPS rate are not the best on the market, but it isn't far behind in any of those catagories. It has a 36 mpixel sensor, that can produce eye popping stills and video.

Nikon AF-S Nikkor 28-70mm f/2.8 ED-IF
I rarely, use it, but when I do, it doesn't disappoint. Good sharp lens on my D610.
I was going to sell "the Beast" when I got the 24-120 f4, but it is just too good to give up.
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 28mm f/1.8G
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR
Least used lens. Good lens, but focal length is boring. I like to carry it when I'm out shooting primes. The wife loves it on the D610, because the kit is light.
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G VR
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 85mm f/1.8G

Very disappointed in its construction. ill contact Sigma for repair.
At 7 1/2 lbs, a beast, but what a beast. Great lens for sports, (hence the name120-300 ...Sport). Clean sharp images with very good AF and VR. In retrospect, if one can't afford a new Nikon 300 2.8 (me...in retirement), the Sigma is an excellent second choice.

This deserves a much higher rating. But the oil and dust issue, really tarnished its reputation. I am glad Nikon FINALLY established a decent policy, that led to my getting a D610, a camera that finally delivered on the promise of the D600

The one without VR. Considered pretty good by most. I thought it lacked pop
