Personally I live in a place that is very dim even at noon in the winter and for me the extra stop of native ISO was worth the extra cost just as it is sometimes worth paying three times as much for an extra 2/3 of stop on a lens. I also use ae-l and af-on all the time and like how easy it is to switch ISO compared to the D610.

Switching ISO is perhaps easier and faster with the D610. Use the left thumb to reach for the ISO button, the right thumb to turn the main control dial and see it changed through the viewfinder, then continue shooting.

And it cares not which direction the wind may blow.

For my lens holding technique, where I cradle the lens, that would still require moving my left hand and I would have to be OK with just a palm grip on the right hand.  Not really a show stopper either way but the Df change only requires the use of one hand and the economy of motion of a smaller movement doesn't buy me as much as keeping a firm grip with my right hand.

But there are an infinite number of "right ways" to do these things.
