The sizes compair if you add about three mm to the bottom of the D700 except for the high flash. Which in my estimation was raised to clear a short lens with a 77 mm hood

As prior posts have discussed, the D300 L-Plate will not "properly fit" the D700. Both Kirk and RRS have newly designed ones for the D700 body only, although the current L-Plate for the MB-D10 will work for either. Here are the appropriate links:
