I will be using my D800 as my vacation camera as well. It's actually one of the reasons I sold my D3s for it (size).

If size and weight is a matter, just put a 50mm f/1.4 and take a 105/2.8 with you and you're done. Or 35mm + 85mm in your pocket.

If you don't mind carrying a FF DSLR and looking after it to make certain it doesn't go missing, then by all means, you'll get wonderful images.

You don't absolutely need fast pro zooms however on such an excursion as you can make beautiful images with a fast 50, either a 50 1.4G or 50 1.8G with do the trick. You might carry a wide-angle, a 50 and a short telephoto, and you'll have a considerably lighter camera bag than with 2 or 3 top zooms.
