I had constant issue with oil and spots on my D700

Same here, it was a big mistake on my part to jump early on a new model, should have waited at least a year as I did for my D70, D200 & D700.

I'm in the same boat. I was late in the game before I actually picked up and experienced the feel and performance of the D700 and then before I knew it they were no longer available. I regretted not getting one, so when the D600 came out I jumped on it in faith that it was going to be as trouble free and venerable as the D700 despite the plastic build. That's the last time I ever make that mistake with Nikon.

Interestingly, my D700 had a constant issue with dust and oil spots. I had to get it cleaned 4 times in the two years and 14,000 shutter actuations due to geavy contamination of oils and dust spots. I was not overly happy about it, but I just got it cleaned and got on with it.
