Nikon D610

According to , Nikon is all set to introduce a successor to the full frame D600 - the D610. It is expected that this camera will be launched in September 2013.

It has not been even a year since the launch of the D600, but sadly this camera has been plagued by oil/sensor dust issues from the start. Many photographers have returned their new cameras under warranty due to this.

Nikon sales of the D600 has also taken a beating and perhaps this has prompted the company to introduce a new model after hopefully taking care of the sensor dust/oil problem.

For those using the D600, it is rather cruel to see an upgrade so soon and also see the value of second hand D600s plummet!

But for those still sitting on the fence, there is a choice between a new D610 which would be at full price perhaps $2200 or so and used/refurbished D600s which could plummet to as low as $1300-1400!

Which would you choose?


  1. Sujoy: which camera & lenses you use normally use, while on treks for mountain sceneries?

  2. Hi KS,
    If I want to go light I take one body the D90 and one lens the 16-85! This should cover 90% of my needs.. If I can take more equipment then I would take the D600 body, 70-300 VR zoom, and one or two lenses 24 2.8 and 50 1.8 perhaps!
    Hope this helps you

  3. I agree with your assessment, but to me the value of my D600 is really irrellevant. I clean the dust every 2-3 months and it's no big deal. The camera is fantastic in so many other ways. I intend to use it until its virtually valueless (worn out and obsolete) like I did with the D70 it replaced. The dust issue will dissipate long before then.

    Nikon Rumors has proven to be accurate in the pasxt few years so I don't doubt their report. This would be dissapointing if true because I think they would sell more D400's instead. I think there are still a lot of pros out there shooting DX and are in dire need of a set of F2.8 DX glass to rival the FX f2.8 and F4 trios.
