70-200 VR II (the I is good, but tends to vignette and lose sharpness at the edges compared to the II, on FX. On DX it's not nearly as noticable)
300 2.8 AF-S II, or the newer VR or VR II
SB-910 (just announced) or 900.
Pretty much the same system you have, only it would be full frame, though with the 12mp vs 8pm, at 1.3x crop, the D700 would crop down from 12 to 8mp, so you would have the same effective resolution.
Just my thoughts. FYI, I've owned pretty much every lens you mentioned having when I was a Canon shooter, and own everything I mentioned or better as a Nikon shooter (except the D700, I have a D3)
I did hear about the vignetting on the Version 1. I guess I should have mentioned that all the money I can put towards Nikon gear, is coming from selling off all of my Canon gear that I listed above. So things like going for the version 1 over the 2, leaves me with more money to put towards other lenses and whatnot.
My friend has the D700. I have looked too much into it and I guess I should. But from a quick search, the D3 and D700, I found that they are relatively priced around the same. What differentiates the two? Why strive for the D700 when the D3 is priced the same?
PLEASE tell me where you can get a D3 for the price of a D700 !
FWIW, I had the D3 and sold it to go to the D700. I simply like the smaller form factor and the weight savings and do not need right now the frame rate of the D3 vs the D700
