**POLL**: D700 firmware? Using battery grip?

Some say that a firmware upgrade helps. Looks like the most recent for the D700 is A1.01 / B1.01. Others say the battery grip helps.

For those saying their D3 focus is noticeably slower than their D700 focus:

What firmware is on your D700?
Are you using battery/grip?
With this configuration, how slow is your D700 AF compared to your D3?

I am almost ready to buy a D700, but if AF is that much slower, may go for the D3.
