An interesting question. To preserve honesty I have to say that the D3 was not a serious choice for me when I wanted something better than my D200. So first off price was a factor and still is. the D3 is certainly a more capable camera and if you use a grip on a D700 the D700 is heavier. But if you choose to use the D700 sans grip like I do, you now have a much more compact body and a built in flash that is very handy when you don't want to haul around a larger flash. The images from the D700 are excellent and the capabilities of the camera are very close to the D3. So yes I am very happy that I purchased a D700 almost 4 years ago. It has held its value well, and has allowed me to take pictures I could not have made with a D200. It was in a price range that allowed me to spend more money on glass, always a better choice where the D3 would have not
