As a D700 user requiring an update, I somehow feel screwed...

Right now, what's the D700 not doing that you need? That's probably the most important thing to consider when looking for a new camera.

Yes and no.  You always want to know that there is a Road Map for the camera you have, especialyl if you have invested heavily in a system,

People have said that the D800's AF is fine. Big file sizes, yeah, but noise is up there with the 5D III up to ISO 6400 or so. Above that, you can still get pretty close with some post processing.

As someone who owns both, I can vouch for that.  In fact, I'd say up to 12,800 they are close and one must remember that you can apply NR to a D800 file and reduce it to 21mpx and get at least the same result anyway.
