The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

The D610 adds a few small upgrades to last year's stellar D600, making it yet another good entry point into the world of full-frame DSLR cameras. Image quality is top notch in the D610, with Imaging Resource calling it "excellent." In low light the D610 can "struggle," says DigitalCameraReview, but PC Mag notes it's still "no slouch," and can "grab an in-focus shot in just 0.3 seconds." Nikon continues to make their cameras user friendly by offering "logically laid out controls," according to What Digital Camera, and Trusted Reviews calls its controls "well proportioned." At a price just shy of $2000 the D610 might not be the ideal option for DSLR newcomers, but those looking to make the jump to full-frame won't find much better options at this price.
