As happy as I am with my D800, I still advise folks to consider a used D700 when they're looking to upgrade from aps-c. It's a precise, fun, powerful professional tool and a fantastic low-light performer.

That's exactly what I did having found a used D700 in exc. cond w/ 11k shutter count for $1000. This was the missing link for my D300 w/ bpp grip & L-bracket.  The D300/D700 are complimentary to each other and 12 Mp is really all i need for portraits, travel and amateur sports photography, that being said the D800 is great camera that I will buy in a few years as near new used or refurbished. If a better or more suitable camera body for me comes out around the same time frame I'm interested in upgrading than I will be more than pleased(ie D800 w/ 24 MP sensor, 5fps aka D710). 

This time around seems to make more practical sense for me to prioritize my camera gear towards nikon pro lenses instead of camera bodies when I was starting out in the DX format. Since I have saved over $2k not buying the D800, I got my eye on the Nikon AFS 70-200mm f2.8 VRII and it will be at least 2-3 yrs before I get the D800 so I might as well get the Nikon AFS 35mm f1.4 and AFS 85mm f1.4 lenses as well.
