You said it. I have both, and switch back and forth between the two in order to avoid changing lenses. When processing a wedding, I notice a significant difference between the files. While the D300 has an excellent sensor, a huge improvement over the D200 for sure, they just don't compare to what comes out of the D3.

This is really the only reason to get the D700. The sensor of a D3 for $2000 less.
