Anyone Using A Nikon D610?

Wed Nov 04, 2015 1:31 pm

Hi. I am planning to upgrade my 550D and struggling a lot. After some valueable comments of some respectful users here, I made my mind to go for a 6D, as I won't need to buy a lens and would be able to use my 70-300 IS USM with the new body, but Nikons high image quality and more focus points were enticing. On the other hand, a friend, who is a pro aviation photographer, had told me I would suffer from Nikon, in terms of focus speed.

One of my friends had recently upgraded his lenses and told me that he can give his old Sigma 120-400mm to me for free and that changed all the equation. The secondhand prices for 6D and D610 are very close here and I started reconsidering everything.

Anyone using a D610? Or even D610 + Sigma 120-400?

Please do comment and tell me what you think of this combination.

Thanks in advance for all the guidance.

PS. I plan to keep my 550D and use my 18-55 (kit), 70-300 and 50 mm f1.8, as I shoot portraits, nature, dance contests, sports events etc.

I was a bit surprised... no one with a D610 here?

I own a D610 with a Nikkor 80-400. Everything is pretty good for me, though it is somewhat vulnerable to dust spots. I find that it has a slightly sluggish focusing speed as well (probably the lens), though I'd still recommend it.

Cheers,

I use the D610 too with the new Nikkor 80-400mm, super combo! Like Yang says, it can be a bit sluggish at times and I too have had dust spot problems(knock on wood, but now she is a bit older I haven't had them anymore...).

I must admit though, I am still learning all the ins and outs of this stunning camera!

Same here.......same lens!
And the Nikkor 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5G ED AF-S.....great!

Dust spot issues though........plenty!

Thank you for all your replies and guidance.

I am torn between. Maybe I should take the lens, telling my friend I'll be switching to Nikon and (as he lives thousands of miles away from me) then sell it and buy a better Canon...  

Best.

I can report the same. I use the 610 with the 70-300 lens. I have lots of dust spots I have to work on but I have no other complaints.
