I would agree with this post entirely, unless high ISO is important to you. I went from a D3 (same sensor as the D700) to the D3s. I kept the D3 as a backup. The first time I had to use the D3 I ordered another D3s overnight to finish my shoot. The difference at high ISO was that great. I suspect that the Df is as great an improvement over the D3s as the D3s was over the D3/D700. For me high ISO is important. About half of my shooting is done between ISO 5000 and 10000. Absent that need, though, I would buy the D700 over the Df. Good luck with your decision.

I found the D3S to be about 1.5 to 2 stops cleaner over the D700. My Df is about 1 stop cleaner over my D3S.
