Great Camera

If you're anything other than an exclusively landscape photographer, do you find the extra megapixels a blessing or a curse? Is the camera versatile enough to take good family photos (I have a very mobile 3yr old at home!) as well as portraits, sports etc?

It will do everything very well with the exception of lightning fast machine gun burst.

If you have the money, go for it.

If you had the choice again, would you still choose D800 over the D610?

Would not give the D610 a second thought.  D800 is worth the money.

Thanks for any thoughts!


You really have not said what gear you have now, so expect FX lens upgrades, which can be expensive, but you can buy what you need when you need it and build a good lens portfolio.

I would only buy top quality lenses as they will last you a lifetime and can be used on future cameras.
