comment Should I switch from D300s to D700?
save up and buy a new camera - the D700 is 6 years old now, and misses many features seen on new cameras.

You don't need an adapter to try it on the 35mm, just hold it over the lens and try it!

comment How to best prepare, print, and display night photos?
Its not a complete answer so I wont submit one: Paper is VERY important for dark images. I have found that glossy / lustre media is best for giving really deep blacks (you want black to be BLACK don't you!) and quality matters - I have seen various cheap photo papers that produce a sort of slightly milky haze where ink is very heavy.

Do you have Noise Reduction turned on? this WILL lower your frame rate.
