D610 shares D7000 no sealed body... not a bad camera anyway, but be careful and protect it from rain... D800 you can use it in snow/rain conditions with no worries

well its pretty much a tie for everything except MP and max shutter speed

i like the "reason to buy a d610 is that it have an built in flash", nice that you forget that the d800 have that too...

I think the tie is between the MP and the cost. Somehow they came up with a tie? i dont know.

How can this be a tie? Are you kidding?

Hi, please share where you get your used cameras from?

Do you mind sharing where you buy your used cameras from? I am looking for a used one myself, but never got the courage to opt for used for. Anything particular I need to be aware of when buying a used camera?

I have the the d7000 just ordered the d800. Mostly shooting portraits and weddings, I've been waiting for a Nikon full frame camera. Specs look good, I thought I would get the most bang for my buck with the d800. I upgrade every 18 months to try to keep up with the almost latest bodies. I buy used from respected sites to cut costs. If you have the full frame lens you're half way there. Once I off load my d7000 I will most likely look into the d610 for a backup but remember great glass goes a long way. Good luck!
