Your problem is that you want a D700 with the ISO performance of a D3. If you can afford a used D3, that's what I would get. In my PJ days, the publisher paid for the cameras and we always had Nikon single digit cameras. Of course, with the D3, it gives you an extra dimension to work with, ISO. I'm interested in resolution so if there was one, I would get a D4x. Since there is no such animal, I have a D800. I'm selling my D600 kit and have ordered the Df so that I can get great high ISO performance. It's not that I like spending money, but the hole in my gear is a high ISO camera and a D3 is just too heavy for me to lug around for a couple of weeks. I really hope you find the camera combination that will suit your needs. Believe me, I know what it's like to need something and not have it.

The D700 and D3 have the same sensor and the same high ISO performance so I'm not sure what your first sentence means.   The D3s is improved over both, but that isn't what you referenced.
