D610, D750, D800? Help me decide!

Hello everyone.

I'm joining the Nikon family this week. Sold all my previous gear and I'll be investing in a fullframe kit.

My biggest doubt right now would be if I should go for a D610, D750 or D800.

I'm from Brazil, so prices are, as you would expect, a bit different here.

So, just to give you an idea :

- Brand new D610 : $1340

- Used D800 (40k shutter count) : $1300

- Used D750 : $1900

I'm a hobbyist, but I plan on shooting a dance presentation once a year in a professional setting. I've been shooting it for a few years already with simpler cameras, such as a Pentax K-3.

The biggest motivation for me to go beyond the D610 is that I'm worried it's AF wont keep up with dance at the shallow depth of field the Sigma 120-300 2.8 will give me. I used to shoot it easily with the K-3, but I had a much deeper DOF.

Do you guys think it'll be enough? I have absolutely no need for the D800's 36MP, but I would consider getting it for the better AF. The D750 would be the ideal option, but it's quite a bit more expensive.
