Thank you for that! I didn't want to bore anyone, but I was a professional photographer for 10yrs, and have ben an enthusiastic amateur for another 25yrs since a career change into IT.

Sorry about the tactless responses you've received here.  It seems that some users post while in a poor mood.

My photographic interests include landscapes, portraits, wildlife, travel, and now that I have a toddler running about at home, I'd like to record his growing up too - all on the best single camera I can afford. The D800 seems like the best fit for most of my requirements, but I need to make sure it's also useful for 'snatch and grab' shots, indoors, in available light.

Yes, it definitely is.  The D800 covers all of those applications with ease; the advantage of a D610 would be lower cost and higher frame rate.  If you're shooting JPEG-only, you can make good use of the D800's reduced-resolution settings, and it also offers more cropping options (which apply to RAW as well) than the D610.
