There are not that many options

If you want a reliable camera, then you would have to stick with a D300 or D700 (my choice).

If you get a newer camera after those models there is a 50/50 chance that you will have to put up with AF issues, dust ussues, oil issues, and the feel of a more plasticky body.  when i had my D200 the D300 did not seem like a HUGE upgrade, so i got a D7000 later on and the learning curve was HUGE.  The ISO capability of the D300 vs D200 to me is not that humongous compared to what's available now, so i would go for a pre owned D700 with low actuations, i think you will be happy with that.  MOST people really DO NOT NEED higher performance than what the D700 already provides, plus there is just something diffeent and unique about 12MP sensors, they are great.

Is really your choice
