Use 2 bodies instead of swapping lenses?
3 months ago

My 7 year old D40x's sensor somehow got out of whack causing everything below f8 to be out of focus on the left side of every image.  This means that my new 80-400 on a D5100 has to be swapped often with the 16-85 lens.

I really don't like swapping lenses for fear of dropping them or more likely, getting dust on the sensor.  Thinking about another D5100, D5300, or how much better the 80-400 would be on a D7100.  Having recently purchased the 16-85 and 80-400, I really need to think about spending more money on my hobby.

Wondering how many use one body without concern - How many use one body but would rather have two - How many use 2 bodies for the reasons I listed above.
