Nikon's D610 is seen as a "quick fix" for the D600 oil splattering problems and leaves a bitter taste to all the people that are now stuck with a "dirty" D600 (an excellent camera otherwise) and no other choice than to dump it and pay full price for the "upgrade".

On the other hand the K3 doesn'f "fiix" anything on the K5 which is recognized as an excellent cam, it just adds truckloads of interesting features (on paper at least) that may prompt people to upgrade.

It's understandable that people's reaction to these very different situations are more or less opposed.

In the same context, the relatively marginal differences along the K5 series dampened expectations for significant improvement. The apparent progress indicated in the K-3 offering is enough to even soften the endless FF drumbeat.
