If you always use flash, and will continue to do so, then no--it is not worth the upgrade.


I do available light for performances and love the D7100 up to ISO 6400, 12,800 it's actually not even that bad for B&W (which is what all my work is in), there's noise but it's not too ugly of a grain at any size I print (usually 8x10 & 11x14). I actually like it at 12,800 more than my D700, it seems to have a little more DR and red light doesn't wash out the sensor as much.

And as others have mentioned the AF will be a huge difference and is the reason I got the D7100 over the D600. Going from my D7100 to D700 the AF sensor itself is the same so it covers much less on the FX body. With the D610 you've got a smaller AF sensor so it's an even bigger difference and I already find myself wishing for more coverage on the D700, the D7100 has spoiled me!
