I sometimes even take my D7k in the mountains but...

I sometimes, rarely, take my D7k Nikon on the odd hike in the mountains.

This results is the following:

  • it becomes impossible to film friends or family in interesting climbing or other technical parts

  • it is much heavier to carry around and since I need to put it in my backpack or else it would just be too damn uncomfortable, well anytime I want to take a photo I need to have enough space to put the backpack down, take the camera out, you name it. A big hassle compared to a superzoom that fits in a hip pocket

  • most images are in no way superior to what I get with the superzoom. Rare, I repeat rare, exceptions include: difficult dynamic range; forests where light levels are typically very low.
