Re: D700 - David I have exactly the same problem
In reply to Dave George, Mar 4, 2014

I was initially concerned about low light focusing when I got my D600. I really wanted a D700 but couldn't find one locally for the right price and shutter count so I ended up with a D600.

I have used the D600 for concerts without much autofocus issue. I have had some minor focus hunting during rapidly changing lighting situations but this was in really low light where you have to under expose to get 1/125th at ISO 6400 or higher.

I think the main issue you would have with using a D600/D610 would be the button layout/handling. Unless you really want something lighter or similar sized to your D700 I think the D3s would be the better option. You could swap batteries with your D700 if you use the grip and the control layout makes it easy to go back and forth.
