Re: d700 + lens

D700 - good a choice as any, given your budget.

Personally, I think the 18-35 is too wide to be your main/only lens.   A 24-xx something would be far more versatile.   24mm is often wide enough on FX, and certainly you'll distort people easily shooting wider than that.

24-85vr, 24-120vr (newer version only), 24-70F2.8 would be my suggestions.

Want a good low light lens at a good price?  50F1.8AF-D.   Not the best 50, but can hardly beat the price, and reasonably sharp stopped down just a bit from 1.8.   35F1.9g also good choice.  85F1.8 (AF-D or G) also nice for low light and portraits.
