I can't argue with the great photos Herman takes with his 810!


Nikon D-3300 18-55 VRII, 1971 Nikkor 135mm Q-Auto, Tamron 70-300 AF. Not much! But I'm working on mastering what I do have.

Jazz, a tricky time of the year to be asking this question. Just imagine a D820 with 4K video being launched before Christmas.

I think you would kick yourself...

 

Anyway, I'm very pleased with my D810...  Take a look at the DPReview.com specifications comparison and see which is most suited for your requirements.

 

Good luck with your choice!

The D750 is a great body but its not a Pro body and that for me is the decider.

 

Its all the little things that add up that make a D810 the better choice - flash sync, no low-pass, base iso, mode button, AF-ON and the body itself. 

 

If you're going to chuck this sort of money about and remember you're making this your primary income earning device there is no point is making do.

While I agree, get the pro body. I would rent the 810 now. There might be an upgrade before the end of the year. But, get to see if it will work out for you.

Thanks, Dennis.

Jazz,

 

You are doing PRO work..... get a pro body.

 

D810 is a phenomenal camera, but I am with Herman on this.... wait for the D820.

 

You can RENT in the meantime.  Some expense and inconvenience, but worth the wait, if it happens.

 

If I was billing people on a regular basis and I made my living from Photography .... D5.

PJ, I go along with the school of thought that says if you are doing Pro work, get a Pro body.  I have been more than pleased with the D810.  I am amazed at the low noise levels I get when I push ISO to 12,800 for interior photography.  If you don't want to wait for a D820, I recommend the D810 without reservation.  :D

 

Art mentioned the D5.  I hear great things about that body, but I also understand that it is aimed at a different user (i.e. news and sports) than bodies like the D500 or D810.  If you think that it's capabilities might be closer to what you need, then your dilemma is solved.  :)

 

I hesitate to recommend waiting for the release of a D820.  While the D810 is due for an upgrade, the D300s languished for many years before the D500 came along.  You might be waiting for a LONG time.  Second, in recent years, Nikon has had a troubling history of QC issues with new DSLRs.  Der 605 is a prime example.

 

Perhaps you can buy some time by renting a D810 and billing it to your clients?  Not a good long-term solution, but if Nikon doesn't roll out a D820 by January, buying a D810 won't seem like a bad idea.  :)

Sometimes the prices do go down, when Soundcraft stopped making the 324 Live digital mixing console I got one new for $999, and MSRP was near $5000


Nikon D-3300 18-55 VRII, 1971 Nikkor 135mm Q-Auto, Tamron 70-300 AF. Not much! But I'm working on mastering what I do have.

I've used both the D750 and D810.  The controls and some of the functionality is better on the D810.  The D750 does have a slight advantage in the AF system.

 

For highest quality images, I'd take the D810.  For a backup camera, the D750 does the job nicely.

 

I'd consider a refurbished D810.  The camera has been on the market a while, and if you keep your eyes out for deals, the refurbished D810 would be a great choice and save $1000 or more.  You might be able to buy a refurb and get a year warranty by using a credit card that has extended warranty benefits.
