So my dilemma is that, my D7000 isn't doing it for me anymore. After having it little over 3 years, the capabilities of it don't meet what i need on the field. So i started looking around for options.
I really liked My Dad's Nikon D3 and how well it handled low light. Its a bulky camera compared to my D7000 and my camera has a lot going for it, like the 16 megapixels or the compact body.
So clearly, selling my D7000 and going for a D3 would be a big upgrade (To me). Ive looked at the D600(And D610) as well as the D700. I think my heart is set on the D700 but i don't like the downgrades that comes with it (Ex: 1 storage slot).
I think id just like opinions from people that have used the D600/D610/D700, and how well it did with lowlight as well as image quality (Among other things, more detail the better). But thats all i ask, is some info on what you liked about the camera vs the other options you had. Thank you for your time and i will respond to comments if i have questions and the like. Bye!

I currently own a D610 and have used both the D3 and the D7x00 series. Other than the FF sensor, headphone jack, and a few minor functionalities, the D610 and D7000 are very similar. The D3 doesn't do video like the D610 does, and the D700 is just an smaller, lower fps D3.

My reccomendation would be saving up for a D750 if you want a significant upgrade in photo and video quality, as well as a flippy screen. If all you want is the FF sensor, get the D700 or D610. The D610 uses the same battery as the D7000 BTW, and has the video perks...

"Oh, that's ages ago," said the Ghost. "One grows out of that. Of course, you haven't seen my later works. One becomes more and more interested in paint for its own sake."
