Worth getting an used D700 or D800E?

Hello, I am planning of replacing my D610. Reasons are that shutter count is kind of high (170 000) and maybe it's not worth to pay to replace the shutter if it will die but mainly because I don't like it's AF.

I can get a D700 with around 70k shutter count for around 205 EUR and an D800E with the shutter replaced and about 20k shutter actuations on the new shutter for about 328 EUR.

I want to use it as a backup camera but mainly to go out in rain and snow to not risk damaging my main camera.

I am kind of inclined to get D800E for it's better IQ, but I am not sure it's worth the price difference as the camera will see little use from time to time.

Any opinions?
