Nikon D610 review – Verdict

Nikon D610 Review –  front view

It wouldn’t be unreasonable to be cynical about the Nikon D610, with its very minor updates hinting at what many people see as it simply being a marketing fix for the somewhat tarnished D600. While to some extent this may be true, the D610 is still a fantastic piece of kit.

With the excepiton of Wi-fi connectivity that some may have liked to have seen, the specification is incredibly comprehensive, with no major gaps to deter those who are thinking of upgrading.

The build quality and finish is very good, with the blend of magnesium alloy and high-impact plastic delivering a sturdy but relatively lightweight feel.

In use it delivers the goods, with a sound AF system and logically laid out controls, while the full frame chip will deliver highly detailed and rich images. All-in-all then, it’s a very well made, well-thought-out and high-performing DSLR that should be very tempting at the price.
