If you value high ISO, get the D700 - nothing anywhere matches it for that (see http://johnsankey.ca/noise.html for numbers - nothing else I've measured comes within 2 stops for noise or 1 stop for colour quantization).

Any higher-pixel camera will have to be poorer in ISO performance - it's simple quantum physics, the pixel area is less therefore the photon count per pixel has to be less also.
