Just recently did the totally opposite and traded my D7000 backup including a couple of DX-only lenses for a pretty much new D700, which is number two for me. The D7000 has been an infuriating experience for me, including AF issues, weird color rendition, built in flash breaking after a couple of weeks etc.

The only situation I could think of where I'd prefer the D7000 is something like a landscape in good light where the higher resolution might actually be useful. Some claim birding or wildlife are good given the crop factor and high resolution giving room for even more cropping, but I can't imagine myself trusting the sub par AF for something like that, and as soon as you raise the ISO a smidgen over base the noise becomes noticeable compared to the D700.

My feelings.., exactly!!!
