I recommended Nikon D700 to students and other professionals who wanted a multi-featured camera they could grow with. If you can't afford D3, buy D700 instead. Don't get me wrong, Nikon D3 is a wonderful full frame camera to have if you have the extra few thousand dollars to spend. D700 gives you the same quality as NikonD3 can offer, if you do not care too much on using high ISO. Since Nikon D700 is cheaper, you can invest in a nicer lens instead.
Being a full frame camera, D700 can provide exceptional image quality in low light conditions without seeing too much noise when using higher ISO. It is also great for landscape photography if attached to a wide angle lens and a good tripod.
