I almost sold my D700 but am very glad that I did not. It is much better for me for the same reasons you have. Among other things, I shoot horse shows and other events where I need to get a large number of frames. None will be enlarged to a size beyond what the D700 can deliver. So, the ability to store many more frames on a CF card is much more valuable to me than having very large, high-detail image capability. The D800 excells in a number of ways, but for a large share of my work, the D700 works better.
