I was going to get a D700 but can't justify $1600 on a used camera with no warranty.

Just a suggestion, you may want to re-look at the economics.  You can find used D700's with reasonable actuations for $1400 to $1500.  Compared to a new D800 with 1 year warranty you're looking at 1/2 to just under 1/2 the cost.  The D700 is rated for 150,000 actuations and even if you ended up having to replace the shutter within the first year for $300-$400 you come out significantly ahead.  I'd suggest checking out the FredMiranda photo gear buy / sell forum.  That's the route I went and very happy compared to the D7000.

Not trying to persuade you away from a D800, just trying to help.  The economics worked for me.
