Photographers looking for entry-level Nikon DSLR cameras might be interested to learn that according to a new rumor by Nikon Rumors, they have learnt that Nikon could be prepping a pair of entry-level DSLRs that will be sort of like a successor to the respective models. Nikon Rumors has learnt that the two cameras in question are the D5300 and the D610. The D5300 is expected to be an improvement over the D5200, although exactly what sort of improvements we are looking at remains unknown, but perhaps WiFi or GPS functionality could be one of them (speculation at this point).
As for the D610, while it is possible that newer features could be introduced over the D600, it is expected to address the sensor oil issue which has apparently been an issue for the camera and has also been why photographers have avoided buying it. Nikon Rumors also adds that this might explain why refurbished prices of the D600 have been on the receiving end of massive discounts, possibly in light of the fact that a successor could be in the works. No word on when Nikon will make their announcement so take it with a grain of salt for now, but we’ll keep our eyes peeled for more info.
