I currently have a D300 and a 70-200 f/2.8 lens and the 17-55 f/2.8 DX lens. Most photography I do are landscapes and travel vacation photos as well as some wildlife. I don't do wedding, portrait, still life or sports photos.

Besides the obvious price difference in the bodies and lenses, based on your real-world experience, what are the advantages of switching from DX to FX? What are the cons? If you had one choice, which format would you go with?

Anyone with experience on both the D300 and D700, can you explain to me the advantages of upgrading to the D700? Are the advantages worth the price or are these 2 camera bodies too similar to invest in and am I better off waiting for the D800 or something newer that comes along?

Thank you all in advance for your responses and help.
