Nikon D610 Spec Rumors: Same as the D600?

D600_24_85_top_KM.low

The rumored Nikon D610 specs have surfaced and appear to be the same as the Nikon D600. Again, the Nikon D610 is rumored to be a fast replacement to the D600 due to sensor spot issue. Accordingly, it makes sense that the D610 wouldn’t feature any significant updates other than an improved shutter mechanism (one that doesn’t produce residue that leads to sensor spots).

    Not sure why they wouldn’t just fix the current camera. This is like admitting the D600 has a huge issue worthy of an entire new camera, telling all D600 owners they are screwed and the cameras will never be fixed, and then entering a year late into the budget FF camera market with a camera that will do nothing more than drop the value of the D600 to the floor. At this point, I would not see any huge rush to by the D610 if all it does is fix an issue it never should have had. I returned my D600 after I noticed the dust and I’m sure glad I did.

    Besides the new shutter, if Nikon wanted this camera to really take off in sales, putting the better pro AF system module that even the Nikon D7100 has (for a lower cost Nikon DX body), into the new D610 as another upgrade, would be enough for a much bigger increase in sales. Of course, more pros might then buy the D610 over the D800, so maybe Nikon would not want that to happen. With a pro level AF system upgrade to add, this could justify a bit of an increase in price for Nikon as well. Just saying, from my viewpoint ….

    or Nikon, please design a D750 at 24MP (so Raw files are not as huge for event photographers who take 1000 photos in a day) in a totally pro body like D700/800, priced somewhere in the middle between D610 and D800 (maybe at $2500 to $2600 for D750), and this would certainly attract lots of sales to event photographers. Please give us more choices in FF.
    I see new D800 bodies now around $2999. in my area in Toronto.
