Is Nikon D810 with 24-120mm still a good purchase?

I am a electric current Pentax K-i user. Though I like the camera, the lack of zoom lenses (I really need 70-200mm) and less than satisfactory AF, I am thinking of switching from Pentax or at least add a Nikon organisation. Since I am familiar with the 36MP sensor, I am thinking of getting the Nikon D810. I meet some deep discounts for Nikon D810 with 24-120mm lens philharmonic and interested in making the movement. However, I am not sure whether it is a adept combo. The other option is Canon 5D Mark 4, but is expensive.

I will be using this camera for a lot of event and portraits type shooting (hence looking for lxx-200 F2.8 VR Two). Though Pentax has some really squeamish prime lenses, the zoom lenses are non great. I am reading mixed reviews most Pentax 70-200 F2.8

I am thinking that the replacement for D810 might exist around the corner, merely that is truthful for all manufactures (something better will come upwardly later – always). But with a mature product similar D810, I am hoping to get more value.

Your comments and suggestions are greatly appreciated.

The D810 has an fantabulous value nowadays, and information technology will continue to exist a meridian-of-the-line DSLR for years to come, independently of its successor arrival past 2017. It’southward a very safe purchase, for sure.

While 36 mpix was considered too high in 2012, at present in 2016 it’s a sugariness megapixel spot for many.

The 24-120mm f/4 is a good lens, but not exceptional. If y’all need an all-around lens, it will be fine. If y’all want the all-time for the resolution, I’d focus in the f/2.8 zoom options instead.

Nikon has two 24-70mm f/2.8 (G non-VR & Due east VR), one lxx-200mm f/ii.8G VR Two (presently to be replaced by the E VR option), and one 80-200mm f/2.8D. Plenty of options.

Tamron also has excellent options: 24-70mm f/ii.eight VC and 70-200mm f/ii.8 VC.

For portraits, Nikon just launched the new king prime: Nikkor AF-Due south 105mm f/1.4E lens. And also at that place the very classic Nikkor AF 85mm f/1.4D in the used market besides (aka the “cream machine”).

Proficient luck.

Assuming the focal length works for you information technology’s adequate for the uses you mention. For critical use at that place are other options, simply as a general choice it is a proficient one.

The torso is 2d to none. Waiting for the adjacent new thing may exist a skilful thought, but information technology doesn’t produce whatsoever photographs

I have bought 24-120/4vr with D750 grayness kit. The lens works well for what information technology is. Information technology is a 5x zoom so it is not perfect. Sigma 24-105 is probable better in image quality except for long terminate, only it weights much more than. If you are buying D810 to enjoy 36MP, then this non a lens for yous, it won’t deliver that in corners. Meet my comparison with a few of my lenses: http://jtra.cz/stuff/review/nikon24-120vr-vs-nikon18-35g-vs-tamron70-300vc/index.html

Regarding the replacement D810, I retrieve it will come up next yr mayhap in two variants H (D5 sensor) and X (new high MP sensor). D5 AF module will not fit D750 trunk and then that volition be replaced even later.
