I don't know why you would spend several thousand dollars on a camera body and use mid-tier glass. Isn't the main difference between D300 and D700 the fact that the D700 can take full advantage of professional FX glass, which unsurprisingly is a lot more expensive (look at the price of the new range of FX lenses). However if you are not lusting for (or already own) these kinds of lenses then why not get a D300 instead?
