This has probably been discussed to death but here goes: Long time D200 user. Long time waiting for the Great Pumpkin....I mean D400. Time to move on.

I do a wide variety of photography from snapshots, motorsports, equestrian and a little wildlife but mostly landscape and artsy B&W stuff. What I would like that the D200 doesn't offer? Higher resolution which is easy. Much better high ISO performance. What I still want that the D200 does offer: build quality. Mine has been a tank. Lots of abuse-no problems.

DX vs FX? Hard call. Got plenty of FX glass. Three DX lenses only one of which is critical, Sigma 50-150 2.8 (one of the best lenses I have ever owned by the way, compact and with the Sigma 1.4 TC incredibly versatile). If I go FX it will have to be replaced with something fast and in the 70-200 range ($$$).

I'll likely buy used. Can get a good D7100 for around $900. A good D610 for about $1700.

Will the feel and build of the D610 be worth it, among whatever other benefits come with the 610?
