"RE: D7000 to D700"

George,

I'm proud of your self control. I failed under this exact scenario - I traded Mick my D7K and a couple of DX lenses for his beautiful D700. I love it! That said, it is a handful as a travel camera. I took it to Italy last month, and I'm extremely pleased with the images I brought home. My photos inside the Vatican and some other cathedrals are MUCH cleaner than the D90 photos I made a couple of years ago. And I used auto ISO up to 6400 in the D700, as opposed to 1600 with the D90. 6400 vs 1600, and there's no comparison in the quality of the files. D700 is a total winner! A heavy winner, but still...

I found that the strap and the bag you use make all the difference, though, when traveling. I used a Nikonians Pro Sling and was perfectly happy with it. I used the 24-120 f/4 and it's a wonderful single lens travel solution. Again, heavy, but beautiful images. I didn't take a P&S, though, and next time I will have one to accompany the big camera. I'm still struggling with finding the perfect travel bag for the D700, but may try a ThinkTank camera pouch.
