I have an opportunity to buy a used Nikon D3 with 7,000 shutter count for $1300.00

I do general photography. Landscape, portrait and birding.I have also some old glass from Nikon and Sigma.

Is Nikon D3 still a good buy compared to the other Nikon full frame?

That's an incredible buy, IMO, when you consider that d700's are usually going for more than that.  Indeed, if I had that opportunity, I'd buy it without a second thought.  The sensor is still an excellent imager and the body is superb, both in handling and performance.  With only 7k on the shutter, it's practically a new camera.

good luck
