First I would have to know what you like shooting

From your site it looks as if landscape & travel play major role in your photography.

If the size of the D610 is not too large for you many find additional DR beneficial to your work, paired with some nice primes you may find they can keep the size down. the 20 F2.8, 28g F1.8 I like and if zooms are to your liking the new 18-35 is something worth looking at.

If you what fast wide angle that doesn’t break the bank you can get the tokina 16-28 F2.8 for under $800 at times but it’s not small, for the price I don’t think you can find a better lens in its performance range.

Don't think that address's any of the OP's requests being a unadulterated Nikon FF advert. LoL

"I’m really trying to find arguments to stay with Pentax!"

Once I find out what he primarily shoots then maybe I can help .

For Nikon you can create any profile you want and then upload that to the camera’s body so that if he primarily uses jpg output he has way more control over the final jpg. I have created several outputs for my D800 that can be downloaded or created and many times just use these profiles and with jpg or tiff rendering that match what I would have processed using PS. This is immensely helpful for clients that need the work at the end of the day or even for the same day printing with little PSing required. This is unbelievably helpful for people that primarily shoot jpg or tiff and want to get the best out of the camera or change rendering of the jpg, if you want a feel of Fuji Provia 100, Fuji sensia 100 or something like kodachrome 64 these can be done at the time of the jpg creation in camera.

Not having to be locked into what a camera manufacture’s think the ideal profile for jpg or tiff and having the ability to customise one to his liking might be up his alley.
