Re: Is the D610 a Significant Upgrade Over a D700?

IQ and DR wise, I believe the D6xx are an upgrade over D700. However, build wise and FPS wise, it is not. But I think it is a wash, given the D6xx have redundancy in terms of two card slots. It is more important to me to have that backup than just a great build and  high fps. Also, the D700 focus points are more spread out while D6xx are scrunched up in the middle, but it can AFS down to f8 glass. So it is a wash in my mind.

If you are more about getting better DR and IQ, and want to have a better ability to crop, then I think the D6xx is better fit than the D700.

Said that, in the right hands, both camera  will take  great  photos.
