Hi I have a D300 and mostly FX lenses, (17-35,24-70, 84 1.4, 70-200) with one DX 70-300. I love taking photos of children etc and sport, mainly equestrian events, the D300 is great for the equestrian events but in poor light struggles sometimes and I hate using it at 800 ISO and above, which I had to quite a bit on a recent trip to India.

I have been hanging out for a D400 for the past year as I want a camera with better ISO capabilities, but so far nothing seems to be on the horizon.

Do you think a D700 would give me enough benefit in the ISO department to make a change? I could buy a D600 or D800, but do not want the mega pixels of the D800 as I shoot in RAW and I am put off buying a D600. I am also worried about camera shake with the D800 as I am now in my 60's...

So I thought a nicely used D700 might be the ticket, ie not very expensive at the moment...

Please could you give me your thoughts..

Thanks.
