Yes Nikon tech does trickle down to lower end models but it’s always crippled in some way so it’s not on par with the flagship, that’s been Nikon’s MO and I don’t expect that to change anytime soon *

*And that is what concerns me because I know it to be true. Different times now...

Yes, the D700, D300, D810, D850, and D500 are thoroughly crippled cameras. It's a miracle anyone ever made a decent family reunion snap with those bricks.

Do you suggest the…

D600 wasn’t the biggest boondoggle in Nikon’s history ? Between oil spots and metal shavings on images , YES even family reunion snaps were ruined ☹️☹️☹️

D700 was on par with the D3/s ?

D750 had shutter replacement recalls numerous times , the need to remove battery to reset the camera, it was ridiculous to the point of Nikon giving BRAND NEW cameras to consumers who were affected after they jumped thru enough hoops to get one.

D800 on par with the D4 ?

D810 on par with the D4s ?

D850 on par with the D5, D850 is a great camera which Nikon took three attempts to get right

DF had a D4 sensor but D600 AF << ( good for static subjects only ) severely crippled

SB 900 wasn’t built with a overheating issue ?

I thought not.

I doubt someone would buy into a system for family reunion snaps , no ?
