Purchased this camera two weeks ago, and already I have been able to get absolutely fantastic pictures of the night sky and milky way. The camera handles well, and the autofocus and metering have operated as I have expected. Controls are well laid out, except for an awkward reach on the front function buttons.

Beware of the return of the "spots" issue

I've have owned a Nikon D610 for exactly one year. This D610 was a replacement for the D600 which had an issue with oil spots getting on the sensor resulting in getting grey spots on every photo on the upper left corner.
The D610 is a great camera and combined with a really great lens, it's an awesome camera but while editing a small batch of photos, I noticed the spots.
How can this be? This cthe D610 camera was basically released for the D600 users as a settlement and it has issues. I've called Nikon about the issue and I have sent the camera in for an evaluation (at my expense) I hope they can solve this issue because a professional photographer, I need my camera almost each and every day.

Digital just gets better.

Comments about Nikon D610 DSLR Camera with 24-85mm Lens:

When digital first came in, I was doubtful about it's existence or for that matter it's staying power.
As time went by, I not only converted but became a true believer. Each new camera I got was such
an improvement over the last but now I have the Nikon D 610 and it no longer needs to get any better.

Thanks B&H for being such a trusted provider in the camera world.

    Perfect upgrade

    Comments about Nikon D610 DSLR Camera with 24-85mm Lens:

    I upgraded to the D610 from a DX. It is very easy to use. All of the buttons are in different places (eg. to change exposure/shutter speed) So far I am loving this camera and the photo quality it produces!

    Comments about Nikon D610 DSLR Camera with 24-85mm Lens:

    I've had my D610 now for 6 months. I've been shooting with my D80 since they came on the market and while the camera still works well, I needed the Live-View to assist my old eyes with focusing.

    I was stunned with how much different the shots taken with the D610 were over my old D80. The clarity, and color are fantastic, showing detail, even in low light one wouldn't expect to see.

    The menus are easy to use if you're already familiar with the Nikon digital cameras. The kit 24-85 lens does a fantastic job and will be fine for most peoples work.

    The battery life is excellent, just as it was on my D80.

    Based on my 6-months with it, I can't imagine ever having to upgrade again....this camera does it all.

    Comments about Nikon D610 DSLR Camera with 24-85mm Lens:

    I bought this camera as oppose to the Canon 5D II.
    I decided on this because it is more reasonably priced than the Canon. So far it has been a delight to use.

    The only issue I have with this camera is when shooting fast/burst it's lagging behind because of buffering to the point of not firing anymore. Just make sure you use a fast SD card especially if you shoot both jpeg and raw.

    Awesome full frame experience

    By Nottopdrawer

    from California

    Comments about Nikon D610 DSLR Camera with 24-85mm Lens:

    Camera is performing superbly. Makes great photos and videos with kit lens right out of the box. Using it for casual video and photo shooting. Full frame is a real pleasure. Was all set to purchase crop sensor camera but couldn't pass up the deal on the D610 bundle. Good white balance. Excellent image detail. DX mode has been useful, too. On board flash works great.

        Comments about Nikon D610 DSLR Camera with 24-85mm Lens:

        B&H photo did a great job of processing and shipping my order.

        This camera sounds like a wonderful camera and I am sure that it could be. BUT I recieved my camera a few months ago and with no visiable damage I started to try it out. For the last 4 months of ownership I have had to manually focus every single shot! (With a two yearold while traveling to places I may never get to go again ie Paris this is a challenge.) I trouble shot, bought books & videos to try and figure out why my focus system wasn't working. I switched from Canon to Nikon because this was the best camera on the market at the time. I wanted to make sure that I was understanding my new Nikon before giving up on it.

        Finally, in defeat, I gave up on my brand NEW camera finally realizing how broken it really is. The lens or the camera are not working right and havent been working right since DAY ONE! Weather its is the Camera body not communicating with the lens or the other way around only time will tell. My NEW camera is currently at NIKON being fixed.

        I am highly dissapointed that my NEW camera has to be sent in to be fixed from the get go for a FOCUS issue of all things. Focus is the main part of photography you are nothing with out it!

        Dishearted would describe how I feel about my camera right now. I will up date as soon as I know what the issue is. Just know spending all this money doesnt garente a perfect product like one may hope for.

            We upgraded from the Nikon D3100 and the different is amazing. Such a great camera. It's bulkier than the old camera, and my daughter is small, so a little harder to hold, but it's surprisingly light. Very happy.

            Comments about Nikon D610 DSLR Camera with 24-85mm Lens:

            During a work event, I recently broke my D80 with Nikon 24-120mm f3.5-5.6 lens and SB-600 flash. In a pinch, I ended up buying the SB-910 and renting the Nikon D810 with 24-70mm f2.8 lens. The photos came out great, especially our group shot of 150 people, but the files were ridiculously large. After spending a couple of days with the camera and researching the newest bodies, I ended up getting the D610 to replace my dead D80 and have absolutely no complaints. The images are almost as detailed as the ones from the D810, and the file sizes are so much more manageable. The kit 24-85mm f3.5-4.5 can't compare with the rental lens, thought the bokeh is very nice (maybe even better). It's also a fraction of the price of the more expensive lens. I ended up paying $ for the kit (B&H credited me $ when I asked them to match the price drop -- great service from B&H as usual!) and have absolutely no buyer's remorse. Until the technology takes a huge leap forward, I have a feeling that this will be my last digital camera. Unless, of course, I break this one too....

                  I'm a recreational photographer. I had a Nikon d70, but wanted to upgrade, primarily for better performance in low light. I'm very impressed with d610. Much better low light images. Better quality in general. Auto actually takes good photos so it is a bit easier to use. Would recommend for people who know something about aperature and shutter speed, not for someone who just wants a point and shoot.

                    I use the D610 in my aerial photography business as well for personal use. I have owned several Nikon cameras over the past 15 years, and have always been impressed with their quality - the D610 does not disappoint! This camera produces exceptionally high quality photos and offers all the flexibility I need. It is also the smallest of the full-frame Nikon models which is important to me in the tight confines of an airplane's cockpit.

                    I have been shooting Canon camera for a long time. Presently a Canon 50D. I recently upgraded to a Nikon D610. Trying to learn all of the features of a Nikon Camera. I have been impressed with all of it's features.

                    The reason I chose to switch to a Nikon was the feature to take multiple exposures. Thinking that I could take up to 10 images to overlay. The reason I rated the camera a 4 star, was that I am limited to only 3 images to overlay.

                    Disappointed!!!!! Wished I had purchased the D810. I should have learned more.

                      Purchased this camera two weeks ago, and already I have been able to get absolutely fantastic pictures of the night sky and milky way. The camera handles well, and the autofocus and metering have operated as I have expected. Controls are well laid out, except for an awkward reach on the front function buttons.
