D3 better than D700?

what do you do that makes you feel the need for those bodies you mentioned?


I've recently gotten into hiking so mainly I want something that can handle the elements better; get wet, dirty, and banged around. Think war zone photography on a less rugged but similar scale. The D700 did quite well, through rain, mud, and clouded mountain tops, but just doesn't feel like its solid. From my experience with the D2X and D2H in the past pro bodies are just more ergonomics and built like a tank!

I will be hiking the "John Muir Trail" this summer http://www.pcta.org/discover-the-trail/john-muir-trail/ And in another year once I've completed my masters degree, I'm planning to quit my dead end job and hike the PCT 2600 miles (Mexican border to Canadian border). So mainly I want a camera that can handle the elements and take a beating.Better image quality and resolution is a plus, but 12MP is good enough for me.
