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

I don't think you should worry about the file sizes of the D800 in a couple of years most cameras will have more mps than the D800.

In terms of quality for an upgrade the D610 will give you better DR than the D700 as well as more cropping capability, and arguably better high ISO performance. But you then lose out by moving from a Pro camera to a consumer camera in some aspects but gain in others.

If you are stalling on the D800 due to the high Mps then I'd wait until all SLRs have the same MP count and then buy the D800. The high MPs on the D800 is an over-hyped problem unless you are a pro photographer who does not invest in his computing power, and why would a pro photographer do that?

The D700 was Nikons first attempt to bring FX to the masses although in a pro body.

The D600/610 is the first attempt to lower the entry point into FX hance why it has consumer facilities.

So yes it is a significant upgrade as it applies to a lot more photographers than the D700 ever did.
