Re: what to replace my old rig with...

Sorry to hear your equipment got stolen.  And thank you for converting it to a positive by starting this thread - its fun thinking about how we would spend someone else's money. Here is my opinion, FWIW.

First choice if you can live w/o FPS - D800.  Also my first choice "overall" because the high pixel count will give you the reach you are used to with your existing lenses, and the camera body will give you the quality you are used to.

First choice if you really need FPS and shoot mostly sports and low light - D3s.

First choice if you can't afford D800 - D610 - I think the D3/D700 sensor is sufficiently dated that I would choose choose this instead - even though you will be giving up a lot of other good stuff.  It didn't get an 87% for nothing.

Good Luck
