    Default The D600 superceded in a year.

    Barely one year after the launch of the D600, Nikon announces the D610. You don't get time to break in your new camera before it is superceded. I would be miffed if I had bought one.

    Why? Why would you be miffed that is? If you were happy with the camera, why would you be miffed if a new version became available? You'd have bought what you bought at the price you paid and its form, function and performance doesn't alter just because a new model becomes available. It's not as if it self-destructs as soon as a new model hits the shops.

    You are correct on all points Huw, where I would be miffed is if I had bought this model as a continuous progression to a top notch camera, its saleability and second hand value have plummeted. many people follow this ethos, Me I buy and use till it breaks, my oldest camera is due its 34th birthday soon now thats value for money.....Regards Mike.

    Confucius, he say, new camera with more technobollox hiding behind every corner. That is 'progress' Grasshopper.

    I just wish progress would slow down, I can't run fast enough to keep up at my venerable age. Photography is supposed to be a staid pursuit.

    Nobody has to 'keep up' [with the Jones's?].
    I'm in a different situation I think, because I have only got into photography late in life and therefore I have only my first lot of cameras apart from one, which I exchanged because it didn't suit me. I have a little collection of cameras now, the oldest of which is my first well-used camera ever which is a TZ6 Panasonic compact.
    At the current time I cannot foresee me ever changing them. They are satisfying to use and take great photos in their own way and dependant on my skill, so why would I need to change? If it ain't broke, it ain't going to be fixed.
