I think the choice is clear...

At low ISO with appropriate technique:

The 5DII has more resolution than the D700, nice for heavy cropping or giant prints.
When things are happening quickly:
The D700 autofocus, frame rate and blackout time etc. are better than the 5DII.

A 5DII user will be able to scoff at the D700 photographer as he uses his "amateur" pop up flash for a bit of fill or to command his remote SB-800 guns.

Finally of course of the two only the 5DII shoots video.
