Help me understand differences between D5100 and D700

Talk Basics - Talk Photography - www.talkphotography.co.uk
Hi folks.

I know this might sound stupid, but I try to figure out which body is actually better and why. I saw few cheap D700's in good nick (cheap enough to squeeze in spendings before RIAT) and thought it could be great upgrade from my current body before jumping onto D810 - except for Pentax Spotmatic SP1000 I never used full frame before. Then I googled basic comparison and got kind of confused.

Fair enough - D700 is FX, weather sealed, has built-in focus motor and all that fancy stuff, but D5100 would give me a bit more reach with cropped sensor, has bigger native resolution (with pixels about three times smaller than D700 though) and slightly better dynamic range. Does this mean that D5100 would take better pictures or give me a chance to print bigger? Would you swap D5100 for D700, or would you consider it an upgrade?

Think I was reading a bit too much recently and got it all mixed up. I'll be grateful if someone could put it straight for me .

Cheers

Tom
