It's now beyond reasonable doubt that the release of the d610 was simply to fix the d600 design flaws.
Nikon listen up, the right thing to do is to replace every 600 with the 610. anything else is insulting and wrong.
about frickin time, i had mine cleaned twice and still no better. will tread cautiously next time. what a company!
now i know what they look like, fire them all!! this is the company that STILL is not admitting to having produced a camera with serious design flaw (ie the D600) and quickly reissued another model to retify the problem (the D610). nikon you should have done the right thing and just replaced all D600 units - ARE YOU LISTENING??? yes i own a d600 and will never buy another nikon product and pay for their salaries ever again!
a new 16mp leaves me cold, especially for an apparent ‘pro’ level camera. another ‘improved' wrapper around the same sensor. come on bump it up to 24mp at least! this is just milking a brand.
AlpCns2: Good to know that Nikon has apparently improved quality control on those shutter mechanisms, despite the fact that the entire D600 "issue" has been completely blown out of proportion. As has been proven by several renowned and respected professional photographers / camera reviewers - such as Thom Hogan.
Having said that, Nikon should have handled the relatively few people that had indeed genuine issues better and more professionally. This has dented their reputation and as a consequence, customer confidence.
Oh and BTW, I have two D600's - and never had any issues with them.
it’s clear none of you own a d600. i do and the problem is there regardless of how many shots you take. i regret buying this and will never give a company like nikon my money again. they should be giving all d600 owners the 610 as this is such a clear admittance of a design flaw.
what i’d really really like to see is how leica lenses stack up to the competition and why they are always suspiciously absent from dxo testing.
nikon has confirmed the d600 i paid 2k for generates sensor junk. my last nikon purchase ever. never again lining some sneaky japanese excutive’s wallet with my $$$.
leica is destroying its brand with this strategy, and by extension so is hasselblad. verbatim cloning another product. this is indicative of a firm that has milked its brand for too long without investing in its future.
That design is pure Newson, especially the mesh. But I keep wondering why 2 designers Leica? Perhaps your just stupid.
dammit sigma, now i have to spend $60 just to update my lens firmware!
Not very convincing looking at the output of 2 experienced photographers. I'm sure we would have seen same shots had they used an iPhone. They should have given the phones to two homeless bums experienced in the art of homlessness and then seen what they produced.
it's interesting how everyone is focussed on the technical or uniqueness of the photos. i think as a series they are quite powerful. for me this makes me think how we are dealing with overpopulation and as a bigger picture suggests the relationship and implications of the volumes of people inhabiting this planet.
thanks for this post, i'm really impressed with Jack Delano, had never heard of him but really good work, in my opinion even better than Walker Evans.
stick to primes
a lot of evan's works are fairly flat, most subjects are in a single plane. there seems to be an obsession with structure & form. interesting but limiting. i just can't see why, nor buy into the idea of him being some sort of understated / objective genius.
Leica, by innovating absolutely nothing, tried to pull the wool over our eyes by relabelling panasonic, truly pathetic, now hasselblad is following suit with sony.
Their respective CEOs should be ashamed of running these product scams!
DCM1024: I keep telling myself that I'm not spending regular income, just what I bring in from photo gigs. I should sell some of the lenses - the zooms! But I really love the 70-200.... Four bodies? Two for work, one for fun and one for my purse. That's normal, right?
look lady, the first thing you have do is to admit to yourself that you have a problem. and you have a big one. you are clearly still in denial.
look sony, what REALLY is on everyone's mind is when are we gonna have this camera with interchangeable lenses???
guys/gals: if agreed 'like' this and let's send sony this message
i so wish the photo world would have it's own steve jobs!! everything is soooo incremental, sony please make something truly, insanely great! just make it happen already!!!
From the review it was very clear AF is not Zeiss' strong point. And I think Zeiss should have put more brains behind that or licenced some of the technology from someone who knows this business. The AF noise bothers me meaning I won't (in future) be able to use this lens for video, an option I like to know I have. I came away thinking the Sigma equivalent actually would be a much much better choice.
those specs are so 2012 and totally lame.
