I replaced my D300 with a D610. Other than build and number of AF points, I would say everything else the D610 is better. A clear stand-out comparing with the D300 is the D610's low light performance and resolution. Switching to live view is more convenient with the press of a button. I like the convenience of the AF mode button, and the new positions of the ISO/QUAL/WB buttons on the D610.  It's also the perfect size and weight for me.

As for the wishlist, I would like to have a better spread of the AF points if not more, and to have the AE-L/AF-L button moved a small bit to the right.
