Well, being new to this forum (have been lurking around) but a longtime advanced amateur I use a D700. Being retired and now on a fixed income I'm content with my FX. Saved all my late 1990's Nikon lenses that I used on my N90s and F100 and now use them on my D700. I suppose if I was younger, working, and had disposable income available to me I might consider the D4 but not the D800. As it is I still have not even come close to using all the functions available on the D700. I remember hearing a pro say "know your equipment and be able to take shots (using manual) without thinking about it". This is a good principal to follow no matter what kind of body your shooting with. Just M.H.O.
Keep your cameras dry and your batterys charged!!!
