D300s as second camera body - am I nuts?

Thanks everyone!

All excellent points.

The main environment for the D300/s would be in tandem with the D700 at festivals at larger venues where lighting usually isn't an issue. As long as I can push the D300s to ISO 2000 and use a little noise reduction, primarily displayed on the web, I should be good. For the dark stuff and when running light, I'll just use the D700.

I do consider video to be a need, especially with the external mic. I have a J1 to get wide shots, pepper in the D300 with shallow DoF for interviews, etc.

So yeah, I'll be selling a 70-300VR, getting the D300s and 70-200VR used and probably a 35/1.8 to have a normal for DX, spot duty on FX wide open or close it a touch when I want a nice vignette.

The search begins...
Taking pictures of what I want to...
