I have an old D40x that I am look­ing to re­place. I can’t de­cide whether to get a D5500 or spend the ex­tra on a D610. Which would you rec­om­mend? Jan-Olov An­der­s­son, via email

Ja­son says... The D5500, which we cover in some de­tail in this is­sue’s Big Test (see page 122) is a very ca­pa­ble cam­era and cer­tainly a step up from the D40x. It has a much higher res­o­lu­tion sen­sor and a more pow­er­ful, ad­vanced pro­ces­sor. And as it’s a DX-for­mat body, you’ll still be able to use any DX lenses that you have, with­out hav­ing to spend even more on lens up­grades. How­ever, the D610 is in a dif­fer­ent class. It’s a full-frame body with bet­ter build qual­ity and more ad­vanced fea­tures, and it’ll also en­able you to make the most of top-grade lenses.

A top-down view of the D610 re­veals en­thu­si­ast-level ex­tras, in­clud­ing a top-panel LCD, user-de­fined shoot­ing modes and ad­vanced drive modes, all of which are miss­ing in the D5500
