You'll love your 700 - I've loved mine from the minute I pulled it out of the box! At first, coming from a D300 DX body, I thought it was a little "soft" (images) but found that I was just mistaken. I just needed some additional practice and a little fine tuning in post-processing (a little differently than I did on my DX bodies). I can't think of being without it for now (even with the new offerings out there). For now, I've found my favorite camera of all time... Best of lusk with your new camera.
