I'm right there with you. I'm using a D70s now, and was looking to the D300 as an upgrade. Now I may spend the extra for the D700. I will wait until some solid reviews are available to compare image quality between the two.

I can't think of a negative reason to choose the D700 over the D300 other than cost and loss of the crop factor over the whole sensor, meaning my longest lens wouldn't be quite as long.

I think the virtue of low noise at high ISO's would outweigh the negatives.

Edit: I thought of another negative: I'd also be out an additional $1600 because I'd end up getting the 14-24mm to go with the D700.
