Oh, I think more than 5 years having gone by for Nikon's first FF camera and to see that there haven't been any significant improvements in that amount of time other than the expected higher resolution is pretty surprising.

There have been many improvements over the past 5 years. If you have not owned at least a few cameras during this period, including the latest models available now, then you will not understand how camera technology and postprocessing has progressed. Ming expressed this well when he wrote, "A professional camera is misnomer: image quality in any DSLR now is light years ahead of what was considered ‘pro’ just five years ago. Either is more than sufficient."

So a D610 has IQ that is light years ahead of the D700 (introduced around October 2008)?

I think not.

I'd personally buy the D610 over the D700 but "light years", at least in this example, is completely exaggerated.  For someone that already has the D700 the improvement in IQ is likely to be "small".  IMO.
