You certainly own all of the right glass for an FX camera.

I had the D700 for two years and thought that it was the best camera that I had ever owned, and I've owned many. It's still the same camera today as it was back then, so it would be hard to find any fault with such a marvelous piece of equiptment. That being said, I had a D800 for about two weeks (mine had problems so I returned it) but I have to say that for the short time that I owned it, I was duly impressed by its capabilities including the color depth and dynamic range. The ability to crop tighter is important to me but may not be to you if you do mostly studio work. If money isn't a big factor, I would definitely opt for the D800. Four years of new technology for $800 more is very cheap. One caveat, I would not recommend that you purchase the D800 until the various issues are straightened out and you can be reasonably assured of getting a problem free copy. I intend to buy another at that time. You may already know this, but DxOMark has rated the D800's sensor as the best ever.
