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…

I'm saying your comment that Nikon cripples every camera below the flagship is a pile of hot, steaming garbage.

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

As a D600/610 shooter for many years, I've written in these forums on many occasions about the disaster that was the D600 roll-out. It's the best known of several QC failures that plagued Nikon products during the 20-teens.

That aside, it wasn't crippled from a features standpoint. The D6xx sensor is still one of the best on the market. At its price point, it was literally a game-changing upgrade from any APS-C body available at the time of release. The D6xx series is one of Nikon's best-selling full-frame systems of all time and for good reason. If they hadn't bolloxed the QC, it would be remembered today as the best entry-level full-frame DSLR ever made

But it’s not, Nikon screwed up the D800 then screwed up the next the D600 shorty after which started a Class action lawsuit which Nikon settled after a year of denying that the D600 was lemon. Your so wrong , if Nikon could erase one thing from its history it’ll be the D600. They got sued and lost face , which means everything to a Japanese company.

D700 was on par with the D3/s ?

Costing $2K less than the D3, what rational person would expect the D700 to match the flagship in performance? More than a half million were sold because the D700 was an amazing performer. It's an iconic DSLR because it made professional performance available at a price point substantially below that of the flagships.

Still dodging the question ,

D800 on par with the D4 ?

D810 on par with the D4s ?

Offering more than twice the megapixels of the D4/s, the D800/810 reset the bar for what high resolution meant in full-frame DSLRs. The D810 in particular is just simply a great DSLR camera body.

I owned both the D810 and D4S the D810 had far inferior AF compared to the D4S,every owner who had both confirm this. Did you own both ?

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

See above (D700). The D850 is widely regarded as the best DSLR ever made. Only a fool would trot it out as an example of a "crippled camera."

I see you don’t even have the nerve to comment on a few bodies I mentioned , lost causes I agree.
