My advice is to wait, why? The D610 isn't really a new camera, just a fix for the D600's oil problems.

If you can't wait, get the D610. It actually doesn't compare favourably to the D7100 on paper other than the bigger sensor, but that is reason enough to get it, besides it's about the same size, so why even bother with DX anything? Reach you might say, get rid of your DX stuff and get a teleconvertor, not the same sure, but it's something.

Do you have any information that the D610 sensor is an improvement over the D600, or is it hearsay that became fact? I don't know what % of the D600 cameras had the oil issue, but mine with about 5000 activations has no oil issue.

The Nikon D600 and D610 use the same 24.3-megapixel full-frame 35.9 x 24mm CMOS sensor. The ISO range is the same at ISO 100-6400, expandable to ISO 50-256000. This sensor performs very well in the D600, with excellent sharpness, dynamic range and high ISO performance. The only DSLR to beat it for resolution is Nikon’s larger and more expensive D800.
