The D-850 is an extraordinary machine, but at the same time a bit big and heavy, especially when used with the 24-70 VR

The difference between the D850 +24-70/2.8 and the Z7ii + 24-70/2.8 is 500g. A huge saving in terms of a camera and lens.

However, I myself am 10,000g overweight so if I want to reduce the weight I'm carrying all day, cutting down on the pies would be a lot more effective.

Using UK prices, the D850 plus lens would net around £2,200 and the Z&ii plus lens would cost around £4,700 meaning those 500g would cost £2,500. Or £5 per gram if you prefer.

NOTE: sorry for my poor English, I am Spanish speaking.

Your English seems excellent. If you want a laugh, I'll try replying in Spanish!

Thanks jocksa!

Good point!

For me it all depends on how much money I will have to spend even after having sold my D-850 and the 24-70VR lens. Surely the ZII plus a fast lens will be quite expensive, so I'll wait to see how much I get for my equipment first.
