Re: There are just too many good choices!

Or RX100 II and a D610 with  28 1.8, 50 1.4, and 70-200 4.0

But I keep coming back to convenience with the D800. With the Tamron 24-70 2.8 VC and DX crop up can use it like a 24-105 F2.8-4.0 VR zoom. It could stay on the camera almost all the time. Only have to wip out the other zoom on occasion.  Again, once you add flash, a bag, etc., the difference becomes 8 lbs vs. 5lbs or something like that.  If it was same ratio and 16lbs vs 10lbs, it would probably be very significant cause you went over the max tolerable weight. Or think 8oz vs. 5oz. - you would for sure not feel difference. The heavier it gets, the more a small difference matters.
