I'm updating some gear during the next few weeks. I currently have a D300, 17-55DX, 12-24DX, and 70-200. I was considering a D300 as a second body, but the low light capabilities (noise, color accuracy, etc) of the D700 have me seriously considering a D700 purchase, with the D300 as my backup. I shoot primarily events and travel; the vast majority of my requirements are in the "normal zoom" range. I've had some issues with high ISO noise on the D300, and was wondering if the D700 would outperform (in terms of low light color accuracy, white balance and noise) a D300 with Noise Ninja or Nik Dfine? In addition to the body, I am definitely getting a 24-70 f/2.8, SB900, and contemplating a 14-24mm f/2.8 or 17-35mm f/2.8 for wide angle requirements (I tend to use polarizers quite a bit, so it's either 17-35mm f/2.8 or 14-24mm f/2.8 and adjust to working without filters.

Appreciate any advice, comments, suggestions.
