Re: Stupid to ditch my D700 + 24-70 for 5n?

I'm roughly in the same boat - I'm considering switching from a D7000 to a NEX7 for portability reasons. I'm waiting for a high-quality normal zoom (possibly the upcoming G zoom?) before making the switch, but I think the only thing I'd miss is the focus speed. I'm not really into action shots other than occasional attempts at birds-in-flight, so I can probably get by with the NEX focus speed.

If the G lens lives up to expectations, I'll probably keep the D7000 body and a cheap prime, and sell the rest of my lenses - I figure I can always rent a lens if I need it for a special purpose. Hopefully NEX will get a good fast ultrawide soon, too.
