Nikon D810 Arriving on June 26 as Replacement for D800 & D800E

Nikon D800

We’ve been calling the rumored replacement for the Nikon D800 and D800E the “D800S” for lack of a better reference; however, it appears that the camera will be called the D810.

This naming scheme coincides with the Nikon D600 to D610 models. The Nikon D810 is also expected to be a rather mild upgrade from the D800 and D800E, as was the case with the Nikon D610 and Nikon D4S.

Although, the upgrade is expected to be more along the lines of what we saw with the upgrade from the D4 to the D4S, including a bump in processor speed to the Expeed 4 series, as well as improved low light and autofocus performance.

    Hopefully the D-810 will also have an improved non-overoiled mirror mechanism. The D-800, D-800E have oil spots on the sensor much like the Nikon D-600. Nikon came out with a D-610 and supposed improved mirror mechanism that doesn’t splatter oil on the cameras sensor. This remains to be seen as will the new D-810.

    Not buying it. Given Nikon’s track record with other cameras, D600/D610, it’s been a joke.. I’m sure the D810 will have more problems than the D800/800E when they came out. When the hell they going to fix the LCD to be like Canon’s?

    If I were to sell my D800 it wouldn’t be for the 810. I’d rather get a Canon 5D.
