Nikon has just announced the D610, a slightly updated version of the D600 full-frame DSLR camera which was released last year. The D610 seems nearly identical to the D600, with the key differences being a maximum burst speed of 6 frames per second instead of 5.5fps, a new 3fps Quiet Continuous shooting mode, and improved auto white balance. The Nikon D600 enjoyed a warm critical reception when it was released last year, but users discovered that some units had a dust accumulation problem with the sensor, for which Nikon issued an official advisory.
