So far, locally, used D700 bodies with low shutter count are going for between $1800 and $1900. There are a lot of folks itching to upgrade to full frame, who cannot afford a $3000 camera. If the rumors are true that the entry level FX D600 will not support screw drive lenses, the D700 will still remain an attractive option especially to newbie full frame owners who do not have the resources to buy the newer gelded pro glass.
The funny thing is, if one holds onto one's D700 for 2-3 years, the next great camera body will come along and the D800 will become more affordable as well. Sometimes is pays to be a late adopter
