My question: has anybody coming from other bodies regretted his/her decision to move up?

I would never consider "moving up" from DX as DX is much better than FX for some photographic tasks. For around 35% of my current work DX is the better format. If your work mix is similar consider keeping the D300

My current bodies are a D800 and, pending a D400, a D7000.

You need to budget for buying some good FX lenses for the D800 to get the best out of it.

Many problems turn out to be a lack of intimate knowledge of complex modern camera equipment.
