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?

The range being, 12mm to 300mm, with TWO camera bodies and never mind that the sole idea of my gear choice has to do with using mostly primes, not just solely covering a range. To simply cover an optical range, I could choose:

16-50mm f/2.8 SSM (575g)

50-150mm f/2.8 HSM (825g)

LA-EA2 (200g)

NEX body (300g)

Total: 1900g (4.2 lb)


D800-body: 900g

24-70 f/2.8: 900g

70-200 f/2.8: 1475g

Total: 3275g (7.2 lb)

But, more importantly, try fitting that all in a small sling bag.

Right, and fair enough. However, that's not what you actually choose. Real world use isn't any lighter at all and covers far less range. Just trying to compare apples to apples in real world use.
