Choices, choices.. CX or FX?
4 months ago

I'm getting older and my whole body hurts after an all-day hike in the mountains - I wish my camera gear didn't weigh so much and take up so much space in my backpack!

Maybe I do have a choice, now...

The V3 kit weighs 2.3 lbs. The D800E kit 5.75 lbs. Of course there are performance differences - but it's better than an iPhone or (even) no camera. This is my 'birding' configuration in the mountains. I also normally carry a FX 24-120 f/4 for landscape/people shots. My CX equivalent is the 6.7-13 zoom. I'll carry the V3 + 6.7-13 on a Cotton Carrier Strap Shot for quick access while hiking (the D800E + 24-120 was awfully heavy to carry on a Strap Shot). Great to have choices!
