Intersting Discussion. I suppose somewhat it depends on what you shoot, whether you will pick a D700 or the D300. If someone offered me a straight swap for my D300 to a D700 today, I would say thanks but no!
I got the best of both worlds with sports shots, using the D300 cropped sensor and the D3 FX. Owning just three pro-lenses, I have a focal range from 24 to 450. I know I could use crop mode on the D3 (Don't know if the D700 will have this) but for a price of £990 + the grip, its a bargain as second body.
I think the D700 would make a great primary body for someone on a budget looking for pro-quality equiptment, but that can also be said for the D300 too.
