I ordered a D800 thinking that was just the camera for me.

I own a D200, D300s, and a D700.

As I waited (and waited) for the D800 to be shipped to the dealers, I began to think about it a bit more.

I had two DX cameras and an FX model, so what was going to be gained
by buying a D800?

Video? Nah, I have a Sony HDR-CX700 for that.

Bigger files to download? Nah, I do not need that either.

So I finally decided to cancel the D800 order and take my $3000+ and put it towards a ticket to the Galapagos Islands.

One of the best camera decisions I ever made!

The D700 is super in low light situations.
It has excellent long life battery.
I have all of the FX glass I could ever want, because as I bought glass for the D200 and D300s........ I always bought FX glass, rather than DX glass.

Winding up with a D700 it certainly paid off.

So if I were in your place I would purchase the D700 without a second thought and save some bucks at the same time.

There is very little chance you could ever see the difference in the D700 and D800 pics.... unless maybe you had the D800 focus problem a number of buyers have experienced.

That must be a really sad experience! I feel for those affected.
