I just gotta have this!
RStyga: Let's us dispense with the myth that all "professional" photographers know exactly what they want or what it is required. I have seen a fair share of them not having a clue about what gear to buy, not only because they fail to follow the industry's rapid changes (understandable to a certain a extent) but also because they don't even know basic technological terminology (e.g. what is VC/IS/OIS/IS).
There is a significant difference between a person who makes money out of taking photographs, a photographer (in the artistic sense), and one who knows about photographic technology and application. Neither category implies any of the other.
Actually it comes from the Twilight Zone. ;-)
These are simply FANTASTIC! Thanks for posting.
tongki: Sony only good on making WALKMAN and TV,not making a good camera
Canon makes a lot of stuff.
schufosi777: Yes the D600 is a flop. Its sensor was prone to becoming covered in oil spots. If this doesnt happen on the D610 it will be a massive improvement and a brilliant camera.Most will say then if there only that improvement then why isnt the D600 a brilliant camera. All I can say is do you really like your pristine blue skies covered in a sea of oil spots.
Thanks. Someday I'd like to get a second Nikon body so I'll keep an eye for positive reviews of the D610.
So is the D600 considered a flop?
If I get this lense I'll need a good uv protector filter wood a tiffen or Hoya be ok?
Apewithacamera: What Brand of UV protector filter wood be good for this lense?
What Brand of UV protector filter wood be good for this lense?

HDR versions with some extra dramatic PP would make these even better. No?
It's amazing to see how complex these lenses are!
