Not being snide, but obviously you haven't shot extensively with any of these cameras.
For me, the ability to shoot WA and in low light (1.5-2 stops) is a HUGE advantage for the D3.
And BTW, the D700's build is the same as the D3's not the D300's.
I've said before here that the D300 is a great camera at a terrific price point, but the D3 is an amazing camera; and the the D700 has most of the D3's great points at a far lower price point -- so yeah that is a big B I G deal!
