Add D5100 or D3100 for trip?
Jul 4, 2011

We are going to Europe for 3 weeks this fall. Current kit is D7000,10-24,18-200, 35f1.8 and 80-400. Plan to leave the 80-400 at home due to weight. The D3100 is .6 pounds lighter than the D7000 (D5100 is .3 pounds lighter).

Any comments based on your experiences of the trade off between weight and features for the trip? We would leave the D7000 at home and use the second body as a backup when we return. Any thoughts?

Thank,

Jack
