My D750 has had back button focus since I bought it.

But hey; who cares?

no it doesn't. It does not have AF-ON button on top right by the shutter wheel. I know you can program the other button AE-L that is close to the eye piece, but that location is not great for focusing.

Yes, it does.

The OP wants that button to be in the exact same spot as in the D700, not a few mm away

I know you can program AE-L button to be AF-ON .... but I tried using it and that extra millimeters to the left changes the experience. Not as easy and comfortable.  And that's why the new D780 has it's own AF-ON placed back on. Nikon finally figured out that people want it.
