You'd think the duffers at Nikon would have anticipated that the large RAW file size would serve as a deterrent to prospective buyers and come out with a micro-RAW capability that Canon has. But, nooo. That would be expecting too much of them.

If you enjoy staring at AF points clustered like a Tampax sanitary pad, go for the D610. With the exception of its sensor, it's a watered-down camera with a watered-down price that befits watered-down expectations.

My advice if you anticipate trying out one:  prepare yourself to be disappointed in advance and prepare well; then when you actually handle the D6xx series, you just might manage to handle it long enough to keep your food down. No guarantees, though.
