Is it CRAZY to travel with only a 35mm 1.8G on my D7k ?

One could say that if you truly wanted to push yourself as a photographer then you might consider traveling with an old MF film body and shoot iso 400 B/W film.

I've done that. Nikon F3, 50mm f1.4 AIS, Kodak Tri-X, but the cost of professional prints is prohibitive these days and I don't have a darkroom. Aside from that the B&W setting on my D700 is excellent!

One thing I forgot to mention about my friend who likes to shoot primes - generally speaking they are MF too. Zeiss 21mm, 28mm f2.8, 35mm f2, 50mm f2, 100mm f2, Nikon 180mm ED AIS. He has sold all his zooms and I suspect his AF lenses are soon to follow suit.
