Light D810 Travel Kit question
1 month ago

hey guys,

I'm finally gonna make the jump and replace my dear D700 with a D810. I'm also going to europe in sept and I'd like to bring a light set of lenses for my trip.

I'm thinking about these... will I be happy with the image quality on the new body?

24mm 2.8 AI-S

50mm 1.2 AI-S

105mm 2.5 AI-S

I could also bring the 40mm voigtlander F2 instead of the 50mm.

I have many professional AFS lenses I could bring but I really wanna travel as light as possible. I'm bringing my carbon tripod for night shots and landscapes. I guess what I'm looking for is people's experience with D800/D810 with these MF lenses so I can make up my mind :-). I'll be getting the new body close to departure so I won't have much time to pixel peep before I leave besides making sure the camera is working properly.

thanks in advance, all input is welcome.
