As much as I have been critical of Canon not getting with the "new sensor" program and giving us Canon shooters better DR, I must say this is a blatant slap in the face by Nikon. A true engineering, part-sourcing, customer relations disaster. Smells like class action to anyone else?

I still think that Canon makes a better quality camera. Tanks indeed! Never had an issue with any that I have owned... S10/G2/20D/5DII...all perfect.

Not all Canon owners share the same luck.

mehh... gimme a D700 w/ video... that's all I want.... my D700 is over 5 yrs old, and aside from video (which is a minor point) it has never left me wanting anything more... I am seriously thinking about getting a second D700 for next summers wedding season... if not a D700, then a D3s... but there's a big jump in price between the two!


try a D800 for weddings. it'll be hard to go back after hitting the highlight slider once or twice.

Why Nikon, Why? Hardly any changes from the D600 ... makes no sense to me. Thom Hogan lists the changes ... small and incrimental ... hardly worth a new model name ... it's a D600s basically and too soon.

Time and resources better spend on a D400 .... Bad Nikon, BAD!

I feel for those D600 owners- I suggest Nikon allow current D600 owners a free replacement offer or some sort of compensation- nothing says bandaid like a .10 model number upgrade...

Not gonna happen w/ this D700 owner.

3x more memory cards needed.

3x more HDD space needed- you shoot 44 weddings and tell me this isn't an issue.

Have to hold the body perfectly still to avoid motion blur- not an issue in a studio or portrait session, but not always possible in fast-moving wedding scenarios.

Nope, the D800 is NOT for me.

Those are exactly the arguments i put forward before i shot with one. Now i have 2 D700's collecting dust. BTW i'm about 25 weddings in this year.

ps...12 bit compressed files on a D800 won't hold you back and gives you files under 30 MB.

Back OT
I heard the biggest "improvement" 610 vs 600...was that they switched to Mobile 1

what exactly are you feeling for me? My camera works just fine. There's nothing broken on it and I shot enough frames to get out of the brief oil slinging period. As a bonus I got to learn how to properly clean a sensor, too. Greatest value for a digital camera I ever got, and now I will be able to buy a second one at even bigger discount thanks to continued statements like yours.

is it too early to start a D620 thread, or will the replacement be called a D700? oh wait....never mind

It is certainly not too early to start speculating about the upcoming replacement, and debating upon whether or not it's worth waiting to buy it instead of the D610. Definitely don't want to be out there actually using a camera, you know.

You try out a D800 yet? Most of my RAW/NEFs uncompressed only go up to 40-45 MB range. With the D700, they're already half the size for the same photo... 3x the MP doesn't necessarily translate to 3x the memory needed. Besides, the D800 has better ISO performance and also much better dynamic range, not to mention two memory card slots.

Then again, the D800 needs top glass for its MP to shine (like the 24/1.4, 200/2, 300/2.8, 14-24/2.8, etc.).

Only advantage of having fewer MP IMO (I shoot both the D800 and D700) is that you get more leeway when shooting longer focal lengths because the blur from motion is slightly less than if used a higher MP body.

But I love the DR on the D800 at weddings, and for group shots it BEATS the D700 easily for details.

I was expecting to find the D800 difficult after my D700, given all that has been said on the net, but honestly its not. Motion blur is not an issue, and I can hand hold it at the same speeds as my D700. The highlights in comparison to the D700 are amazing and realistically my D700 has been all but retired from active service

Nikon really hosed D600 buyers on this one. Shameful. This is going to come back to bite them the next time they launch a new body...people will think twice before preordering.

After this and the D800 left af fiasco I think I will be waiting some time after release rather than be used as a beta tester again.

Just got my D600 back from Nikon with the shutter mechanism replaced. Took about 200 shots over the weekend, and did a f/22 sky test...100 dust/oil spots!

I'm pissed off. I'm an amateur photographer on a budget and feel like I got screwed here. What am I supposed to do now, send it back again?

If Nikon put in a 51-AF and 1/8000 speed with 1/250 flash sync... a lot of serious amateurs and pros would simply forget about the D800.

Need a Nikon body with a truly quiet shutter on Q mode.



Really the major downside here is the shutter at 1/4000. The others are minor issues for that price point this will be a great camera for a lot of people.....

As an aside.... Do you perceive Nikon as having market share problems? Is that why they are consistently selling cheaper cameras over canon?
