Re: Having trouble picking 2nd camera. Considering D800. Need advice.

Everyones opinion of what it light and easy to travel with is different but for me a D800 with a 24-70/f2.8 and a 70-200/f4 isn't exactly a light setup. To me, DX format with a single lens (18-200 etc..) is much better in that arena. The camera and lens would weigh about the same as the D800 body.

The image quality is excellent in the current DX cameras, the only downside is handling. To me the handling issue isn't much of a concern in low pressure situations like family photos and travel shots.
