I have the D3 and am tempted to "downgrade" to the D700 for the smaller size body. However, one of my favorite things about the D3 is the fact that the battery seems to go on forever and I never have to worry about running out of power. Sure I could use the optional grip on the D700 to get equivalent battery power, but that defeats the purpose of getting the D700 for me...

Also, having two CF cards slots is nice, since sometimes I leave my CF card in my card reader by accident and with the D3 I always have the backup card in my camera.

I haven't experienced a big dust problem with my D3 and I do tend to change lenses often (I have Dust Aid and used it once or twice in several months and that has been enough, although I know other people have more of a dust issue).

Right now I am leaning toward keeping my D3 although having a smaller body sure would be nice (but then again I have the Sigma DP1 for when I really want to go small)....
