My question is whether I will notice a difference in image quality between my D300 and a D700 when shooting in adequate outdoor light.

To tell you more than you want to know: I presently own a D300 that I have been using for a couple years--I have found the noise at high ISOs sometimes intolerable but am otherwise delighted with the results. I have a nice complement of lenses--14-24, 24-70, 70-200, 200-400.

I'm an obsessed enthusiast (I have a real job to pay for all this), shooting outdoor sports (rugby, rowing), indoor sports (indoor rowing, wrestling), travel (indoor and outdoor shots), landscape, astrology (moon, star trails)and family and other general photos (indoor and outdoor). The D300 crop factor and fps have been useful, particularly for sports, but I would really enjoy better high-ISO/low-noise pictures and a wider angle would be useful.

So, I am planning on getting a D700 for those reasons. As I noted above, my question is whether I will notice any difference between my D300 and a D700 when shooting in good outdoor light. I'd appreciate your thoughts on that (and the D700 generally given what I shoot.)
