I already own a grip that fits the D700 so that isn't any extra expense. Isn't the D3, the exact same sensor as the D700? So, the D3 would give me a couple more fps and (from what I hear) a little quicker AF. But, the noise performance isn't going to be different than a D700, right?

FYI, I shoot soccer with the 200-400 f/4. I do also own the 70-200 (older generation), but it's too short for full field soccer.

If I were going to shoot soccer under the lights with any 12MP FF sensor I'd want to pair it with a Sigma 120-300/2.8 HSM. You can find good used ones in the $1500 range.
