My thoughts...

As much as I like my Nikkor 12-24 f4 on my D7100, a Nikkor 18-35 f3.5-4.5 on a D600 would likely do a better job. The normal zoom is a little tougher to do cheap and light, but both the 24-85 f3.5-4.5 Nikkor and my 28-75 f2.8 Tamron on a D600 will outperform (but not by a lot) the 17-55 f2.8 on a D7100. Add a 50 f1.8 G and you're good to go for about $1200 in lenses. If you're like me this may sound a lot like treading water. But your 35mm, 85mm and 70-200 would really shine on a D610.

Personally I'd rather buy a Sigma 18-35 f1.8. I have absolutely no use for this lens, but I love it!
