When I switched from DX to FX I wrestled with the decision but eventually purchased the D700 & loved it so much that I wished that I had made the switch from DX-FX sooner. I hung on to my DX thinking that I may want to have it as a backup but after one year and no use - sold it & never looked back.
You can add excellent glass in the future but use your 50mm while getting acquainted w/ the new body.
Now, to answer your Q. D700 or D800, I have owned both and actually sold my D700 when I purchased the D800 but I miss/prefer the D700 & am even considering buying it again-Miss it that much! I took some of my best images w/ the D700 & looking at your great gallery images think that you would appreciate the D700 too!
Art is the only way to run away without leaving home.
