Nikon D610 Price Drops To Under $1700 | Deal Alert

By Anthony Thurston on October 28th 2014

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.

These are some pretty crazy prices, and are not to be passed up if you are looking to take the step into the full frame world.

    In the UK The D610 body goes for around £1200 whilst the D750 body sells for £1800, may as well just save the extra and get the D750 imo

    Although the D610 is a great camera, it has not been selling well. Nikon re-badged the D600, but it wasn’t enough to fool anyone. The D750 on the other hand is supposed to blow the D610/D600 out of the water.

      Agree completely, but they aren’t aimed at the same users. The D750 is a new ‘middle’ FF price point between the D800/800E/810 level and the D600/610 level.

      So the D6xx and D7xx line are apples and oranges to me.

    Is this just the reality of Nikon offering another FF price point, or is the D610 just not selling well?

    I ask because I’m a Canon guy and we see a very similar decline in 6D price while the 5D3 keeps trucking along north of $3K some 2.5 years since launch. Is the enthusiast/entry FF market that weak, or has that market been hit the harder by the various A7 bodies? Just curious.

    I imagine sales were off with pricing so close to the D750.

    I just started assisting a wedding videographer. He uses Nikon to shoot the weddings and he loves the D750. He has a few D610s but they don’t film as well in low light, which many weddings are. I cannot comment on how either takes pictures as he does not do that (only video), but he said he will be getting rid of the 610s to get more 750s.

    Soon am coming to the full frame world and am loving these price drops

    Maybe this will force Canon to drop the price of the 6D, as these were released as competing options.

    There’s Nothing in focus in the second picture… Kinda strange, on a photography website? :)

    Love my 610! Been itching for a second and at those prices it will be very hard to resist.

    That’s a great deal! One of the least expensive full frame cameras available anywhere. My D7100 was just over $1,100. I certainly would have paid the extra for a refurbished D610.

  12. Anthony McFarlane

    Well, this sounds very tempting. I wanted to wait for the 750… hmmm

      I think you should still wait for the D750, from what I’ve seen and heard so far, it’s a far superior camera.

    • Nick Viton

      I’ve heard the same and agree folks should hold out for the D750.
