Noogy: Checked image quality at high ISO. It is almost the same as the four-year-old 6D!

Indeed. And how do I find out it's not for me? By reading reviews and comments, right?

For my kind of photography and new interests, high ISO was my paramount concern. So hell no I did not look at other differences because in the first place they won't matter to me.

I have been shooting with my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge along side my 6D and 80D. Quick question on the iPhone 7 / 7 Plus camera - is it better than the S7 Edge and the HTC 10?

Richard I have a question. Is high ISO better than 6D? In the studio shots you posted, I don't notice a remarkable difference, but what's your take?

My 6D is retiring. Will wait a bit though for reviews to kick in, but I'm just about ready to grab this.

How could you not include Corel PaintShop when it is better than most of the alternatives you stated?

When the 7D came out, it was a game-charger of sorts, it was ahead of its time. Its second rendition is now fielded against equally competitive models, hence I agree with the silver rating.

DPR this is your Gold Awardee, a camera with a defective design that it needed an immediate replacement.

And this sorry saga continues. Nikon can take a thing or two from Andy Grove's "Only the Paranoid" and on how he had to swallow the bitter pill to make Intel a better, more customer-responsive company.

In reply to:

aramgrg: Gold? Come on guys, nothing is changed within a year and so, but your ranking still is gold!
For instance, the same kind of changes has been made from T2i to T3I (even more substantial), but the first received gold, the second one silver, which is logical.
Would you give a gold star another t2i announced this year, say t5? I don't think so(even considering price category change).
So it will be logical to change either d610 to silver, or give no award, saying D610 is a continuation of D600 with fixed bags.
Secondly, your comparing tool at the conclusions page is totally irrelevant. Comparing D600 vs D610 nothing changes substantially, besides the value row. How will you explain me the fact that D610 received gold award, nothing has changed upon D600 to the worse, but it is half the value(even the announced price,maybe by 100$, but they have been fairly similarly priced when announced)?

Oh yes, ironically, a camera with a defective design was awarded GOLD. I think DPR has been ***** something/someone since they moved to Seattle/Amazon.

Noogy: DPR please make up your mind. You gave the same gold rating to the D610's defective, flawed predecessor - the D600 and vigorously defended such rating even when I commented that I personally already knew at that point that a new camera to replace the D600's flawed design was in fact already in the works. Months later Nikon finally indirectly admitted that it was a flawed a camera that needed to be replaced asap in perhaps what can be described as the shortest replacement cycle in the DSLR world. Please restore a bit of credibility by withdrawing your D600 rating and giving it to the truly deserving D610. Imagine the irony when in the future, one of the worst DSLR bodies in history due flawed design, was at one point rated GOLD by your prestigious website!

King Penguin, I don't care what your impression is of D600. It nonetheless remains a flawed design - otherwise why would Nikon be in such a hurry to release the D610? Semicon manufacturing is a cruel science. This is wanton commercialism on the part of Nikon because if Nikon halted the intro of D600 despite their knowledge of manufacturability and quality issues of the D600, they would not have had a decent competitor to the Canon 6D. How long did it take them to correct the flawed design of the D600, which means how long did it take them to come up with the D610? So yes go ahead be happy with your D600. The fact remains its manufacturer decided to replace it ASAP. Be happy it sharpens your photography AND sensor cleaning skills. So yes be glad I am not in charge of something important. The fact remains you have in your hand a camera with a defective design, and thank God it's your money, not mine.

AbrasiveReducer: I hope a business student somewhere is following this. We'll never know but it would be interesting to compare the cost of admitting the problem up front vs. denying it and having to fix it anyhow.

Even more interesting would be the thought process that led them to believe their customers would accept the situation. To be fair, the intensity of Nikon fans may have misled them somewhat.

I wouldn't be surprised if the EU played a role in this too, because they are far less forgiving of warranty shenanigans.

Andy Grove's "Only the Paranoid" is a riveting admission of how Intel once faced a similar situation, tried to dodge the bullet, and eventually became a better company because of it.

And to think I was once clobbered in the Nikon forum when I shared an internal knowledge that Nikon knows the D600 had a design defect yet was brought to market! The D610 corrected the design flaw of D600. Semi-conductor manufacturing is a lot of quality test and failure analysis. I wonder how the D600 ever got the "manufacturable" go signal, which eventually led to them putting it on high volume manufacturing mode. It should not have been brought to market without having fixed such flaw. However, delaying the D600 release would have meant that Nikon would not have had any model to compete with Canon 6D. The Canon 6D came out in the latter part of 2012. The corrected D600, which is the D610, came out just months ago - thus imagine the amount of time that would have past without a competing model from Nikon on the entry level FF camera model segment. Hence they chose the greedy path, sell as many D600s despite the design defect.
