I guess you are one of the very (!) few who could benefit from the Sony RX1. Looks like a $300 P&S and couldn't be less obtrusive.

Regarding the D800 : Deducing from your description I'd say what you do is pretty much journalism photography. Therefore I'd rather pick a 24-70 instead of a prime. The "small" 70-200 F4 might come in handy as well.

Don't forget an external flash since the built in (light from it) is partially covered by the hood or big front element.

Thanks GL2k,

The rx1 will be a lovely camera, but spending 3500$ its out of my budget. I can stretch it quite a bit, but not to reach that point.

On regards to zooms, i have a thing against them, rather shoot with primes. I have a 35mm 1.4 which i love, so if i do take the D800 that will be my only lens, and maybe a 28mm 2.8 AIS which  i have as a backup.

Also have the same feeling for flashes, not very fund of them, unless is for studio or covering social events....
