Just body price hasn't dropped. This is a decent price for a new body with $150 lens.


This is a great camera. Same sensor as d750, for 99% of users just as good.

I disagree. I've had the 50mm f/1.8G for years and never loved using it on DX. I recently got the D750 and was amazed at how well the photos using this lens came out.

Testing in a lab this lens might not be as good as the 85mm 1.8G or more expensive lenses, but in real world shooting I find this lens is great on a 24 MP FX sensor. Shooting wide open at ISO 800 head and shoulders level I can count individual eyelashes. You'd have to print that at 2' x 3' before you noticed any sharpness difference from other lenses.

People buying a D610 for under $1,000 aren't hyper-demanding professional shooters. This lens will be great for them. Smilie

While the sensor is good. The auto focus is pretty much crap unless you use dead center. They're trying to package a turd.

This AF module is better than what I had on my D5100 and I never had a problem getting great shots with that camera. It's better than all the AF modules from film era, and those shooters made real money shooting sports with those cameras.

It's not the best AF system in FX, but people buying this camera aren't looking for a D5 or a D850.

This seems like the only FX Nikon camera on sale today.

Most people who see this price on a D610 already know if they would buy it or not. If you're not already an expert shooter then why would you consider an FX camera with only one prime lens over a DX Nikon that you could afford to buy 2-3 additional lenses to go with?

Having owned D50, D5100, D300, D7200, and D750 - I can tell you that you would be very hard pressed to tell the difference between shots on a new 24MP DX camera and a shot from the D610 or D750. I know because I went one day from shooting and printing with my D7200 and the next from the D750. The differences were visible at 100% and only after I expertly post processed the RAW files. Differences that will never show up in prints unless I print HUGE. The other difference is in usage. Subtle improvements in performance that you can only notice if you control every aspect of shooting: focus mode, focus points, white balance, metering, full manual control.

If you've mastered your DX camera, and are on a budget, then this camera has a great sensor and will not disappoint.
