OK, so you want to know what you get for another 3 grand, don't you?

Got my D700 delivered this morning from Roberts. Nice work.

First thing I did was set all the settings exactly the same as I have them set on my D300. Same focus and metering, same ISO (max3200 - min100thsec); same picture control etc.

I shot in RAW, did no processing except to convert to jpg using CaptureNX2, then fit photo to maximum 1400pixel hight.

Then I shot with different lenses that you are likely to use, in low and day light. I had both cameras set to P mode for all shots.

Go to my gallery http://www.pbase.com/lmmiller9/d700300_comparisons&page=all

The photos of Zoe are with the 1.4/85m. These give a good comparison of the difference in framing from DX to FX.

The LvRm24m shots are with the 24-70, as are the Ern shots.

The porch shots are with the 14-24, both at 14m.

Shooting the house across the street the first shots are with the 24-70, and the remaining for are with the 70-200, both at minimum and maximum focal length.

My only comment is that these are both bloody good cameras and with these bloody good lenses, you are only going to see a difference in the low light shots. The shot of the Ern is lowest light and you can see the difference in noise.
