In no particular order...

If you're still in contact with the friend with the D700, slap your 35 1.8 DX on it and see what you think of the vignetting. Personally I'd drop the $100 or so on a used 50 1.8 AFD instead of using a DX lens.

if you're worried about the 1/4000 shutter speed for bokeh purposes, don't. The D610 has a native ISO of 100 and can drop down to ISO 50 -- that puts it on a par with what you could get with a D700 or D3s which have native ISOs of 200 that can drop down to 100.

Don't buy a $2,000 camera based on a $50 battery.

Good luck with your choice.
