Say what you will about Nikon’s handling of the whole D600 sensor oil debacle, but there is no denying that both the D600 and D610 are still very capable full frame cameras – more camera that most could ever need, if truth be told. Now, thanks to the recent release of the new Nikon D750, the D610 has seen a price drop.

When it was originally announced, the D610 commanded a price tag of just under $2000 at $1996.95, now, after a few pricing variations, you can now get one brand new for just under $1700, a nice $300 savings. If you are cool with refurbished gear, the discount is even higher, with a “new” refurb pricing in at just under $1500.
