Re: Backup camera for Africa

You are probably right in that getting another D800 is a great idea.  However, I really like the idea of a lighter camera like the D7100.  I'll have to think about getting the 80-400 and leaving the 70-200 at home but if I went this route I would probably bring both.

IQ from the 80-400 is better than from the 70-200 with a TC attached so I would take an 80-400 and leave the 70-200 at home. You also have the option of using your TC with it as there have been good reports of how it performs.

For a backup camera, hire another D800. If anything does happen to your camera, you will be happier that your backup is exactly the same - especially when looking at your pictures years later!
