I have been visiting the local camera shops today. I live and work near Basel in Switzerland, so have the options of France, Germany and Switzerland for shopping. All of the shops I have visited today are zero stock on the D700, apparently they are not selling them because of the future release of the D800 ! So that knocks my plans into touch. Seeing that the D7000 is 1,200 Swiss Francs, ( $1,300) I may go for that and carry on looking for a D700 for the future.

Sorry, but I am curious, what lens did you break?
The D7000 is a great little camera.. a lot of fun .. you will be amazed with it coming from a D40. as for a lens, consider the new 24-120F4 VR since you can also use it on a full frame D800 as well. a 50mm with a dx camera is too restrictive i think.
I broke the standard lens. Long story but, I bought it to replace my Canon AE1 programme, fancied a change. Used it for a couple of years and then the wife borrowed it while she was making a restaurant website. I got it back 2 years later after I had both my knees replaced. I took my son to watch the WRC here in France and fell over in the forest. I landed on my right knee and the lens :( I'd been talking about either the D7000 or D700 for a while, when the wife mentioned that it must be a sign to get a new camera. Now with the wife's blessing, I can upgrade :)
