Congrats on the new to you D700. I have one i bought new a year and a half ago, I do not have the optional grip , and will not buy one as it adds to the weight, which is just fine and I always carry 2 extra batteries. If I want faster drive i have the D4 for that and deal with it's weight ok also.

As for the dust with the D800/600, this seems to be a problem on all the newer DLSRs from any manufacturer. I wtas a problem with Leica's M8, and M9 rangefinders at first. The problem they found and I suspect is the same for Nikons and others these days is over lubricating the newer shutters being used these days. They found they did not need as much lubrication on their new generation shutters, and changed their specs for lubrication and this solved the problems. Caused all kinds of flack from users until they solved the problems. I was one of the lucky ones as my M8 never had the problem, even though it was an early production unit. My D4 is clean and has never had a dust or oil spot problem. One thing I do to avoid dust is, always turn off the camera, and blow air with my mouth, or a blower, if you have the time, around the lens mount before changing lenses, and also hold the lens opening down while changing the lens. Seems to work for me.

Cheers,
Gene
