Hi Michael.Like Luke said, a no brainer in favor of the D3. Unless you would really prefer the smaller form factor of the D700 without a grip.If you bought the D3 and tried it out, you could always sell it for more than twice what you are paying and get a D700 with part of that money.Best of luck whatever you decide, I have one of each and consider them to be the best cameras Nikon has made.JIM
