Even though my camera has the capability, I still find myself hesitant to shoot at ISO over 1600 if I can help it- maybe I should loosen up a bit, eh? I know the D700 is old news by now, but for anyone who is still wondering about it's high ISO capabilities, here is a link to some shots I took at high ISO- not that they are good shots in technique and composition.

I would be thrilled to see your high ISO shots as well.

Looks like you need to get over stopping at 1600, they look great to me.
That 24-70 seems to be just as awesome

Amazingly clean images. ISO 6400 looks better than my cam does on 1600.

Yeah, 6400 is about as good as my D200 at 1200, AFTER I run the image through Noise Ninja. Yikes. Of course, good light helps. ISO 6400 in indoor lighting might not be so clean.

don't be afraid honey poo!

I think thats why Nikon went for a 12mp FF so it could have great high ISO shots :)

Those shots are amazing. The 3200 looks better than 800 on a d40x. I am saving for a 300 now so I don't want to see anymore of these shots or I might end up saving for a little longer.

Let it go to 3200 :)

1600 is just getting warmed up.

Those look awesome Chris - So freaking jealous. . . I feel like I'm riding a dirt bike and you just pulled up in your Hayabusa asking how fast mine goes. But, here goes -

I agree, the D700 looks about 2 stops better than what I get from the D40 at 800/1600.

thats a great shot Aparmley. Sharp crisp, and great color for ISO 1600.

So... all we've got so far is 1600? I'm nonplussed.

Here's a 6400, scaled down. 6400 usually is pretty good, but I was disappointed with this one:

It doesn't look too bad scaled down, so here's the original. The shot was taken in a hurry (we were landing, the seat belt sign was on, and I was on the other end of the row) and so I didn't realize I was still at f/9 until after I got home.
