"D80 user interior photography - upgrade to D300 or D700?"

Hoping someone can point me in the right direction for a camera body purchase.

I have a D80 that I use for Virtual Tours and still photos of real estate sales and rental properties. The lens I use for this job is the Nikon 12-24 f/4 ED.

I use the same lens / body combo to shoot landscapes for stock as well.

My hobby photography (no money in it yet) is motorsports photography, and for that I use the Nikon 80-200 f2.8 D lens and the D80. I often carry along a D50 with an 18-70 ED DX lens attached for the closer shots when shooting motorsports.

I use the D80 and Nikon 50mm f/1.8 D lens for helicopter photography.

So the big question is - upgrade to a D300 or a D700?

Will my 12-24 DX lens provide a wider field-of-view on the D700 as opposed to the D300?

I cant see myself upgrading body and lens at the same time, as many people have suggested when upgrading to FX like the D700 / D3. Just can't afford it.

Am I better served (with respect to my lens collection) with a D300 or D700?

Thanks for any advice
