How about Ansel Adams?

I think Galen Rowell would carry an Olympus OM-D with the 12/2 and the 75/1.8, perhaps also a 45/1.8

I think Ansel Adams would carry a D800E with a 14-24, 24-70, 70-200, 60 macro and 105 macro.

What would you guess?

Galen would be the one using the D800. He always used Nikon equipment.

No. Rowell would be carrying the lightest equipment he could get away with that would give him great IQ at the narrower apertures he typically shot at.  A d800, as good as it is, is a brick.  An om-d is closer to the spirit of the FE he always carried.  If you want the nearest thing to the horse's mouth on this, ask Thom Hogan, who was a personal friend of Rowell's and shot with him often.

The lightest Nikon equipment.
