My wife has indicated that she wants to join me in my hobby and would like to commandeer my D90, which gives me the opportunity to shop for an upgrade.

I've been eyeing a full-frame for a bit now (only have Nikkor kit 18-105, 50/1.4G, and 70-300 VRII) and am about to pull the trigger on the D700 w/14-24/2.8 and 24-70/2.8 before the wife realizes that she's opened pandora's box. I've found myself shooting primarily architectural/landscapes/low-light indoors (cathedrals, etc.)/nightscapes/travel - her focus is portraits and family.

Given that the Nikon $300/$400-off camera/lens rebate is expiring very soon (read: today!), anyone have thoughts on going for it now, or waiting around for a D700 replacement?
