D610 is selling below the D800 at Amazon, even below the ... D90!

Even in the rarified FF market it's not selling very well.

According to this http://photorumors.com/2013/12/30/best-selling-cameras-in-japan-for-2013-and-the-future-of-the-industry-according-to-one-financial-analyst/ which may or may not represent the sales outside of Japan, the D800 and D600 sales numbers are almost the same and together, they total the percentage sales of the D7100 which for most people, is still quite expensive. I really like the D600 but I think it's at a price point where if it doesn't meet some specific requirements you have, you can probably find the extra money for a D800 if that what you want. Considering a D800 might be the last camera a lot of people buy for a several years, the extra $1000 is not that big a deal and it will likely have a better resale value vs the D600 as well which is currently the case with the D700.
