If you shoot birds, bear in mind that at any given focal length the image size on the D700 will only be 65% as big as what you get from your D300 (8.45micron pixels vs. 5.5micron).

At the other end of the FL range, it's roses

I have a D700 and assuming you can live with 12MP on FX (you might want to sit down with a calculator and see how your existing lenses "convert") and no video, I'm sure you'll be stoked. 8fps with the grip, great VF, awesome high-ISO performance (you will never look at your D300 files the same way again!) and instantly familiar handling. The D700 is also very "easy" on lenses - I was really surprised how good the old 50/1.4D looked on the D700 compared to the new 50/1.4G (better than the test results suggested, that's for sure).

Good luck with your choice!
Scott
