Hello. So apparently I am in a huge dilemma between the Nikon D700 used and Nikon D800 also used. Prices here in Greece vary between 550-700Euros for a used D700 and 800-1300 for a used D800. Photography is one of my most beloved hobbies and I'm not afraid to invest in it but I'm torn between these two and the pics they provide. Video is not a serious issue. Maybe repairabilty is more of a sounder problem ,right?

My equipment right now is a Nikon D60 , Nikon D300 , Nikon 85mm f1.4D , Nikon 80-200mm f2.8D (two-ring) , Nikon 50mm f1.8G ( you can see all my lenses are FF - I'm planning to buy a used 20-35mm f2.8 two soooo......ok)

So between the too which one would you choose ?

Well, the D800 or better yet the D800e is an easy call.  Much more accurate color, much cleaner skies, much higher resolution, etc., etc.   Parts availability tends to taper off sooner or later for older models of consumer goods.
