I don't think the D610 will have any major spec upgrades, for the sole reason that its competitor the 6D is already behind the D600 in many aspects. Maybe the D610 will include some marginally useful features like Wifi/GPS.

I'm curious to see how low the D600 will be cleared out.

I was thinking the same thing, but more to do with the fact that too many hardware changes would cost too much to make an incremental upgrade worthwhile. If all they added was Wifi and GPS and didn't raise the price (doubtful that would happen), I would not be interested unless they added something else I wanted. I understand many people desire these features and acknowledge they are valuable to some, just not me.

If this rumor is true and the only new features are Wifi and GPS, I'd be very interested in the closeout pricing on the D600 also. If it was anything like the closeout pricing on the D200 at BestBuy a few years ago, that might be too much of a bargain to pass up.
