Why buy a camera with a mirror. I do not understand the purpose? Only a huge drawback. Heavy, heavy lenses, complicated mechanics, poor video performance etc
People have thousands of dollars in glass sometimes, and dont feel like switching but want a nicer body.

Any love for the d500 here? Debating on d750 or d500. Currently have a d300 from a decade ago.
DX vs FX there. I've shot with all three a lot (and a D700, same era as D300), and these are all great cameras.

I think you get more value with the D750, but unless you need the best high ISO performance and FF, the D500 is a great body. Focus performance is (IMO) better than the D750, the focus points cover the entire screen (almost). It has backlit buttons (oh so nice), and it's a very solid and reliable body.

I'd say if you do sports, BIF, nature, etc., the D500 is a better camera. If you do wedding, indoor, portrait, family, D750 hands down.

Did Nikon ever straighten deliberately leaking oil to its sensor?
I don't know why people mess with Nikon, who is so desperate to increase sales number by deliberately breaking its critical components..
According to Nikon rep, you're expected to upgrade to a new hardware every 2 year or so, or you don't deserve to carry its name. Nikon is for bragging right, to show how stupid you really are.
The D610 was specifically introduced as 'the body that fixed the shutter oil issue with the D600'. So yes.

And what Nikon rep are you talking about? I'm happily shooting with a 10 year old D700 and 12 year old D60 still. Both work as well as the day I bought them. One needed a replacement rubber grip, but that was a small price to pay for an excellent camera.

Some Nikon bodies (like the D3s) are legendary for a reason. And it's not just so people can feel good about themselves. Nikon didn't do well with the D600, but they rectified that mistake with the D610, which is a very good value FF body (though I usually recommend the D750).

It's good to know someone out there found Nikon to be useful, although latest sales number points otherwise.

I'm not surprised why Nikon is rapidly losing its market share in the photography sector and, hopefully, soon will disappear into dust. Nothing in this world lasts forever, and Nikon with its despicable and predatory marketing tactics, I'm really surprised Nikon lasted this long. I believe Japanese government is pumping billions into Nikon to stay afloat, just to recognize their contribution in old infamous experiments during WW2 era of camp 731.

You know Abe is direct descendent of old Japanese Imperialists, and his government shows no shame to go back to old glory days of mass murdering and human experiments of biological war. Nikon glass is too valuable to let it go.

Have you checked the prices of used Nikkor glasses?

I agree...especially about the d750 focus points when trying to shoot action or birds in the flight.

The d500 was new when I purchased the d750 and was more expensive. For anyone starting out the d500 and the less expensive dx lenses are worth considering depending on your goals.

I have to say that I'd look at mirrorless before purchasing either now. The live preview and touch screens are useful. My canon m series allows me to edit pics right on the camera.

I read last week nikon is coming out with a d750 replacement that will look like the z6, but with the F mount.

The d610 is a solid deal for an FX camera. Its probably the cheapest route you can take for a quality fx camera.

Most comparable mirrorless are much more expensive.. some are cheap, but those arent as good as this d610.

i agree with all the others with the sentiment that investing in a NEW dslr these days isn't the best option. there ARE a lot of cheaper dslrs that can be had at good prices used, and that is a good alternative to going mirrorless.
It's a great time to buy a new DSLR. Even today, the dlsr pro users outnumber the mirrorless. Yes, mirrorless is gaining, but not as much as one would be led to believe here. I've shot some sporting and entertainment events this past summer and saw LOTS of big Canon and Nikon glass that outnumbered Sony by my estimate of 4/1 (Sony the 1). Will that change in 3+ years? Sure, but then Nikon and Canon mirrorless will gain big traction since lenses are compatible. At the end of the day these are all tools and one still has to do the work to get a stellar image. NOte that the mirrorless will not automatically give one better IQ..that's up to the user. From my playing around with a Sony AR whatever (their latest) in a real camera store, I was once again reminded why I don't like their menu and button layout. Sony also lags in weather or waterproofing compared to Canikon. When that day comes and I need to add another pro camera body, the NIkon Z6/7 will be fine for my assorted lenses.

Wow, what is your problems spewing all the nonsense Nikon hate? Jeeze, not even a super Sony fanboy could make those mindless claims about Nikon. Go take your meds.

That's a very subjective question and would largely depend upon personal preference, but if if were me ...I'd return the D750 and go with the D610. The D610 is a tool that feels good in my hand and that I enjoy using, and, well, the D750 just isn't. I have very little occasion to need/want to move the screen, and I don't ever come close to pushing the ISO limits of the D610 (let alone that of the D750).

However, since you like the D7500, you may prefer the feel of the D750. The one DX body I occasionally use is a D7100 (with grip), which while slightly smaller and lighter than the D610: is larger than the D7500. I find the D7500 to be very small, and it irks me that Nikon opted not to provide an optional battery grip f9r the camera. The D7500's specs are good, but again, it just doesn't feel comfortable in MY hands.

Since, after reading your comment, I gather you're not going to be cranking the ISO to unrealistic levels, I think you'll be very happy with the D610. If you don't already have a 50mm prime, all the more reason to go with it.
thank you so much. another option would be for me to keep the D750 but never take it out of the box and sell it some day to a collector... like 10 years from now! what do you think about that? lol I got a 50mm 1.8G new in the box also so now I will have two copies! I have been using my 50mm 1.8D for many years and just never found a need to use the 1.8G... but would if I start using the D610.

lol. not sure why you think d750 will be a collector item.. I have one. it's a great camera but highly doubtful that it will be a collector item. if you want collector item that will retain or even appreciate in value, go online and see what classic lens are and get them. they are obviously not cheap but several will retain or even appreciate in price.

It's well known fact that investing in a body to make money off one is most of the time a losing idea. Lens are the way to go if you want to invest.

Depends on your intended use. I've owned a 750 for a few years and rented a 500 for a weekend. The D500 is absolutely incredible, almost telepathic autofocus and the 10fps vs 6.5 of the D750 is a big upgrade. I took around 800 pics of race cars and trashed maybe 20 due to focus errors.

If you can only have one camera that needs to do a bunch of things well enough, the D750 is it. If you need the AF speed/accuracy, burst performance, and the crop factor works to your advantage, the D500 is the one you want.

look at the prices of NIB Nikon D7000 cameras. I only paid $500 after selling the lens for a USA model. it's a risk though for sure. can I post photos here to show some of my night photos taken with my Nikon?

Do you mean a 70-200? If so, that used to be my fave glass when I shot professional basketball. Loved it!
Nope!

The one I have is a little older, the other user linked it!

Funny thing is I bought it to start shooting indoor sports as well! The funny thing is it's such a beautiful lens, I'm using it as often as I can.

you can try to make short term money gain by selling a discounted kit with body and lens after the sale is over or just the lens or the body after the sale. But good luck selling a brand new unopened D750 for higher price 10 years from now than what you pay for it right now..
