I'd search for a low  mileage D800.

ISO100, better dynamic range, you wouldn't  lose body quality without going "full size" of a D-digit.

If you downsample to 12 megapixels you'd probably see better sharpness and lower noise. You may even use a DX lens and end up with more megapixels than your current 12.

OTOH, 36 megapixels images are heavy on CPU and storage.
