1-Depth, width and weight measurements with a particular combination, as requested. I should have included height as well (because that too matters).

To head off the inevitable, I recognize that you have several other lenses and whatnot. However, if you add in just the 24-70mm f/2.8 to the D800 combo you get 90%+ of the range your bag has and with just a single body and two lenses. Weight/size wise it looks like the 24-70mm would be smaller and lighter than the rest of your bag added together, so a net savings.

Alright, so out of curiosity I added the total weight in your bag and compared that with the total weight of a D800 with a 24-70mm f/2.8, a 70-200mm f/2.8, and an 16mm Nikon fisheye f/2.8 which covers every focal length you have.

The totals:

Your bag: 3769g = 8.309lbs

The FF combo: 3754g  = 8.276lbs

Welp, guess the weight argument pretty much just went out the window, huh?
