Used D700 OR USED D3?

Hi everyone,

I'm now all set to move into Nikon from my canon set up which has served me well over the years. I am chiefly into wildlife photography, and have been using the Canon 400mm f/5.6 L lens (without IS). The Nikkor 200-500 is what changed my mind and how!

With my decision made, I decided to put my money on a new lens but being short of cash, I've decided to go with a used body. So, here's my question:

- Go with a used D3? 
- Or with its 'younger' sibling, the D700 (which I am almost convinced about)
- Or with the D7200 (as many seem to be suggesting it)

Which one of these will give me the best price-value trade off in terms of
a) Auto focus (continuous tracking is a big need for me),
b) high ISO performance  (I wouldn't need to go with more than ISO6400),
c) ease of use (i use back button focusing)
d) Image quality
Request the experts here to opine.

Much thanks in advance.
