Overall I think the original poster has a good point.  I love my nikkor 24-70 zoom, it is simply one of the finest lenses I have ever used.

But it is big and heavy, and if like me your are walking for two or three hours, it gets even heavier somehow. 

I find myself now walking around with a small, manual focus 24mm nikkor, and carrying around another small prime in my pocket much of the time.   I still use my 24-70mm, and these other new lenses are nice, but yes, they do get heavy after a while.
