A few have said to try a D7100.

You should try a D7100. It is a great camera. If someone knows what they are doing with this camera it will do what you are asking for. You will save a lot of money. The results will not look any different over the cameras you are looking at. It will give you 7 fps in crop mode which works good for sports. You will also save on file size.

Per DXOMark , the high ISO performance of the D700 is about a stop better than the D7100. I think that would be significant at ISO 3200 and ISO 6400 which is what I have to use in the 2nd half of these evening games. That's one reason why if I'm going to get an interim camera, I'm thinking it should be an FX camera that can do high ISO better than even the latest DX camera.

Plus crop mode compromises the high ISO performance even more so I'm not interested in using that at all.
