      Comments about Nikon D610 DSLR Camera with 24-85mm and 70-300mm Lenses:

      I bought this at a insanely great price and I was debating whether to get the new 750 or the 610. I compared the specs and with the discount I got here at BH, it wasn't worth the extra money to buy the 750. The kit also came with sd card and a wireless kit! This does amazing video on top of it's great photo qualities.

        Comments about Nikon D610 DSLR Camera with 24-85mm and 70-300mm Lenses:

        I have been looking to upgrade from my Cannon 50D for two years. Deciding between the Cannon 6D and this camera was extreamly difficult because I had to buy new lenses either way. The Nikkon 610 is compleatly sealed and that is why I choose it. I live in a very windy and dusty climate and knowing it was weather proof gave me a sense of security I didnt have with the 6D. Its easy to use very user friendly and so far I am very impressed.

          I am stepping up from a point and shoot camera and the photos taken with this camera have been amazing. The learning curve has been steep, but auto is doing the job for right now.

            Comments about Nikon D610 DSLR Camera with 24-85mm and 70-300mm Lenses:

            Used for scenics and nature shots, mostly. Very easy to use even with its multitude of features. Something for almost everyone. Very easy handling, easy to learn button and dial workflow. Uses dual SDHC or SDXC memory cards and saves Raw on one and Jpeg on the other if that is your workflow. Photos taken are superlative. Wireless interface included works flawlessly. Both lenses are high quality, typical of all of the Nikon glass I've owned over the last four decades or so. In fact, my old AiS glass works perfectly on this body. I use the Nikkor AiS 600mm f4, a Nikkor AiS 80-200mm f2.8 Zoom, a Nikkor AiS 24mm f2.8, a Nikkor AiS 85mm f2, and a Nikkor AiS 50mm f1.4, along with the two included prosumer lenses.

                  Comments about Nikon D610 DSLR Camera with 24-85mm and 70-300mm Lenses:

                  I researched this camera for quite a while, comparing it to the D7100 and the D800. I was wanting to upgrade from my Nikon entry level DSLR. I'd learned the basics but wanted more features to go with my growing experience. Ultimately I knew I wanted an FX camera and the D610 looked to be just what I wanted. I'm happy to say the camera lives up to the hype. The exposure control, metering options, bracketing, in-camera HDR, and great low-light capabilities turned out to be exactly as I'd hoped. If you're considering moving up from DX to FX you won't be disappointed with this one. So far, no shutter/dust issues like its predecessor. B&H came through as well with same day shipping.

                      Comments about Nikon D610 DSLR Camera with 24-85mm and 70-300mm Lenses:

                      I bought this D610 bundle for my company use, and I use Nikon D800 for my personal work. D610 comes really close to D800 in performance. It's color processing and white balance are great! It is perfect for amateur photographer who wants to be more serious in photography, but doesn't want to pay the price for D4 or D800. With the price that you are paying, this bundle is really worth the money. Although 24-85mm and 70-300mm are not the professional lenses, but they still perform extremely well in different situation. With the VR they can still take very sharp images under low light. This bundle also come with the wireless mobile adaptor which quickly transfer image files to my IPhone. This make it very convenience when you need to send out some scout shots or images to your clients or co-workers.

                        I am very happy with this camera! The resolution is superb and the controls easy to use. I am a semi-professional that does both digital art and photography, using the photographs "as is" at times but also using them in photo composites or for abstract work.Using this camera is perfect from this work and I can understand why Professionals enjoy it so much as their backup camera!!
