Just a few comments. Have had a D700 since 2009, it's a really nice camera, just does its thing, no drama. Picked up a D4 in 2012 for covering the conventions, and it paired nicely with the D700. I always liked the two camera, 24-70, 70-200 combo for covering events.

The 12MP of the D700 is getting kind of thin with what folks want in image files, so it's getting retired. And my fabulous 24-70 is getting the "crunchies" again (have had it repaired once), so that may be getting retired as well. Found an inexpensive refurbished Canon 6D & 24-70 f2.8, so now that is paired with the D4 & 70-200 f2.8.

Would love to have a D5 (or the rumored D6), and a brand new, original 24-70 (optically superior to the current model) but no way is that in the budget.
