I can echo everything you've said. I've gone from a D80 to a D300s, added a D7000 for backup and better high-ISO performance, to recently getting the D700 for the same price & shutter clicks in like-new condition (mine was also owned by a female, although I take meticulous care of my gear as well)

Coupled with the 70-200 f2.8, it's a fantastic combo. My first trial run in low light was at a "Wednesday Night Ramble" at the Empress Theater in Vallejo. The shots turned out pretty good considering I had next to no time to get a feel for how the D700 "handles"...
I had no problem with going up to ISO 6400, unlike my D300s where going above 1600 made me cringe. I still love that camera though, it's pretty much married to the 17-55mm.
Shots I took that night are at

Happy shooting!
