Makes sense to move from D7000 to D700?

With the budget you cite, I'd say no, it doesn't make sense to sell what you have to go for the D700. All you'd have left is the 70-300VR and what FF lens will you buy? It seems you've done your research on the differences, but I don't see a reason to switch based on what you posted plus a limited budget.

The current have 3 lenses:

  • Nikon 18-105mm, which I'll sell with the Nikon D7000
  • Nikon 70-300mm f/3.5-5.6 G VR, which is full frame compatible
  • Nikon 35mm f/1.8, which should be pretty easy to sell

So, I'm not really heavily invested in DX lenses.

I'm just a hobbyist photographer, so don't really have much use for the D800/800E. In any case, I don't believe my skills are at the level where I'll be able to fully utilize the abilities of a camera like D800, or justify spending that amount of money.

I think I should be able to sell off my D7000 + 18-105 lens around the $900-1000 mark.

For the new purchase, I can go max. upto ~$1200. I don't think be able to get a used D600 at this price, hence I'm considering a used D700.
