Good point.

Went to Tanzania, used a d700 for WA and low light  (24-70 2.8) and a cheaper D5100 and 70-300 Nik. to get some reach. This setup was fine for me:  i did not have to change lenses (dust,dust, dust) and i had a reach from 24 mm (FF) to 450 mm (DX converted to FF) in a second.

I had very good results with this but fotography was not my main goal. I spent a lot of time looking and made pictures just for the memory. Was okay for me, saw many people only making pictures and missing (in my opinion) the experience. But that's fine, everybody should enjoy this on their one way and needs.  Have a great time!
