Re: here's the actual result:

the point I was making (albeit in a slightly round-about way) was that people are unlikely to jump straight into DSLR ownership at the D700/5DmkII level so your investment in lenses likely makes the decision for you

and that they are both very good cameras!

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.
