Maybe D700 instead?

I am about to buy a Nikon D3 and some lenses. Am also planning to
travel overseas and am limited to the lenses I can take. Since the
camera will weigh a bit I need to consider only two lenses ...can
anyone advise the best options. I weighed up my decision to
purchase a nikon over the sony alpha 900 and am hoping to have made
the best choice. I am a long time camera user but really only in the
beginners league Any help would be appreciated...thanks in advance

The D3 won't "weigh a bit", it'll weigh a lot, so why not the smaller (but still FF) less expensive d700? Or maybe the even smaller and even less expensive D90 and 16-85mm VR, that also will give you excellent image quality. But, like the others said, try in the Nikon forum instead :
