Re: D610 or D7100 w/ lenses for 2.5k budget

Obviously people will have many opinions, and the mirrorless crowd seems to be growing. Honestly, I don't have any experience with them (too poor to have multiple systems ;-)), so I don't have anything to say about them good or bad.

For me, weight and size are not an issue since my main lens is a 300mm f/4. For you, only you can decide if a change in systems makes sense. If you do choose to stick with a Nikon DSLR, I would recommend you go for the D610 (or used D800). Yes you can get more goodies right away by going DX, but by going FX you will be where you ultimately want to be and can add the extras later.
