It depends on your needs. D700 is a great camera with a big, heavy, tank-like body. I recently bought a used one but the sensor didn't even match my D7000; I felt the DR was lacking (I shoot in very complex lighting situations - real estate interiors). After 2 weeks of using it I sold it and bought a D600. The improvement in DR is very striking. I get significantly more latitude out of D600 JPGs than I got out of D700 RAW files. And the SD cards work better for me. Only downside of the D600 is that it feels very plasticy coming from a D700, but if you come from a lower end model you won't notice. The only reason to get a D700 is if you want to tough, metal build, D600 wins everywhere else.
