Here a couple nice new features on the D700 that are not available on the D300:

1) Viewfinder blackout switch. The D700 has a little lever that mechanically blacks out the viewfinder. So if you are using an autoexposure mode and don't have your eye against the viewfinder, you flip the lever to black out the viewfinder and not have light entering the viewfinder affect the meter reading when the shutter is tripped. (the D300 and D200 are supplied with a little cover that was never handy when I wanted it).

2) Improved diopter setting. The D700 has a diopter setting that you pop out and then rotate. This prevents accidentally changing the diopter setting (which I have done on my D300)

FWIW - the CF door seems to be fine without the lever.
