I'd suggest you check out this recent thread about a D300 owner's impressions after renting a D3.

Also, the D700 (available used for $1300-$1500) has the same sensor as the D3 so if you don't need the built-in grip, you may want to go for a D700.

Note also that I think the D700 has sensor cleaning - something the D3 and D3x do not have (the D3s does).

The best thing is the toughness and the battery life but if neither of those things are especially necessary for you then the D3/D4 platform is a heavy thing to carry around at 1.3kg (about 2.7 lbs) per body.
