>The higher dynamic range makes it easier to recapture blown highlights.
A good photographer does not "blow" highlights
There is no photographic paper that can accommodate 11 stops DR without compressing some of the tonal detail.
DR exceeding 8 stops is rare in many parts of the world.
A 1000:1 test chart is "only" 10 stops DR
>The high ISO capability permits me to use 1/(2f) instead of 1/(1.5) for minimum shutter speed which improves sharpness

Opening up a stop on on DX to get similar depth of field has the same advantage
>The shallower dof allows me to get better bokeh and focus
>isolation.
I doubt is gives better bokeh
Extra subject isolation (only wide open) is offset by extra depth of field of a faster shutter speed similarly useful in macro or BIF is a DX advantage.
>The greater tonal and color ranges produce better and more pleasing colors, even at base iso.
Brian and I find up to much faster than base ISO the greater tonal and colour range you mention is not what we get - in my case in a 20 inch wide print.
Sorry - I find technology has improved so much D3 to D300 do not have the advantage you suggest to about 1600.
Can I start a new flame
Don't compare a D7000 DR and fine detail recording ability to a D700 and expect the D700 to win.

Photography is a bit like archery. A technically better camera, lens or arrow may not hit the target as often as it could if the photographer or archer does not practice enough.
