Almost a year has passed since the excellent full-frame Nikon D600 was launched, now Nikon have announced a successor with the new D610.
Geared as the entry-level full-frame offering from Nikon, the D610 has only minor additions to the outgoing D600 model. Whilst the D600 was a very solid performer, it did draw some criticism for being rather prone to sensor dust and grime, hopefully this has been fully addressed with the new model. Other than that there are only a few improvements to the new D610.
The first is a new shutter mechanism, which increases maximum frames per second to 6 (from 5.5 on the previous model), there’s a new quiet shutter mode, which shoots at 3 fps whilst making the minimum of noise, and also a slightly upgraded white balance system.
Other than that it’s the same spec as the outgoing model, the Nikon D610 is available this month for $1,999 for the camera body only, various other lens kit combinations are available.
