Please tell me how you know?

Many of the US professional photography associations publish statistics on average income, etc., of their members. Your assertion was that a D3x would pay for itself in a week. That would imply that annual profit would be 50x that ; ). But all the statistics I see show that the mean or median is ALWAYS less than US$60,000 annually. Some significantly less.

I can also tell you that I don't know of an assignment I could take that would pay for my D3x in a week. Moreover, for an assignment that would be high enough in revenue to bring me that much profit, I'd be tempted to rent MF equipment.

Forgive me Thom but many of us on this and other forum use the D3 and
D700 side by side including me. It's a pretty standard combination.
Whilst I welcome the cleaning system in some ways, it makes the D700
viewfinder less precise and useful.

While Nikon says that the viewfinder reduction is due to the cleaning system, frankly, that's a cop-out. We have other full frame dust systems that didn't need a viewfinder reduction.

In my opinion, sensor cleaning is not going make me buy a camera.

I didn't say it would. I said the lack of it made the technology in the camera feel "dated."
