I bought a new D700 about two years ago and it has been my "workhorse" body, with the D300 as my backups. Have never regretted it. It's handled all of my needs, including a lot of low light shooting for events.
I've never used a grip, mostly because of the additional weight factor (the lens I have to use the most is a 70-200 2.8 which is enough additional weight in itself) and I usually wind up working 12-18 hour days.
