D600 vs D700 for the next 7-10 years: which is the better investment?

Hi everyone. I am rather new to the forum, but have already benefitted a lot from browsing through the threads. I do have a question, though. I am looking to buy an FX body, though I'd rather spend most of my budget on lens rather than on a body. With that in mind, i am planning on getting an FX body that I can relie on for the next 7-10 years or so, investing the rest of my budget on lens. Given this, which would you say would be the wiser choice: buying a new D600 or a used but well-taken care of D700 ( with, say, ~15,000 shutter counts), assuming they'd go for about the same price, or maybe the D700 for just a little less?

The camera would be mostly for street photography, travel, and portraits.

Many thanks in advance! Any advice or suggestion would be greatly appreciated!
