I went from the 700 to the 810 with zero regrets. From the day I got my 810 I never touched the 700 until I packed it up and gave it to my nephew. I fail to understand the angst and the drama in the d700 upgrade debate. The d810 is every bit as great a camera in its generation as the d700 was in the past.

Same here, except it was a D800e that caused me to quit using the D700.  Both gripped with big batteries, so I really noticed the 4 frame per second of the D800e after 8fps on D700.   But when shooting both at the same time, I found myself dismounting a lens from the D700 to use it on the D800e.  I took a backpack of camera gear with me on a 3-week Mediterranean trip, and the D700 never left the bag.

That convinced me that a D700 wasn't a good companion camera for me to use with a D8xx.  I got a D810, and now that is the primary camera.  I don't mind using the D800e with it, and I'll often have one on each shoulder.
