We learned from Nikon Rumors that the Nikon D5300 model was supposed to represent the evolution of the D5200, introduced last year. In this case, speaking of the mid-range consumer range, Nikon D5300 would come with the integration of Wi-Fi connectivity and GPS as those two features are quite important and required by mass. The other features have not been disclosed yet.
On the other hand, the DSLR namely the Nikon D610 would be an upgrade of the Nikon D600 launched in September last year, whose sensor, unfortunately, tends to get dirty easily by attracting dust that you cannot clean without using a special liquid. As Nikon is already offering a great support to customers who bought this DSLR, but this upgrade would definitely leave this problem behind.
In addition, the Nikon D610 based on the EXPEED processor is supposed to be introducing only minor improvements, such as optimized components to eliminate the problems identified on the predecessor.
The retail prices of both DSLRs could be lower than last year while it is not yet clear when the new models will arrive in stores, but you may be missing them for a while.
