I would take the D2x only and the 150-600. Confirm everything's working right before you go.

Then, bring a point & shoot as your back-up and landscape camera, so you don't load yourself down too much.

Hi, thanks for that.

I had considered something similar and if it was just puffins sitting pretty, it would probably be more than enough but I was hoping to get some puffins in flight and the travel at 30-40mph and was thinking I'd need the best autofocus body I own as I miss enough due to lack of experience/technique without factoring in an autofocus system on a body that's 15 year old😁.

Lugging 2 bodies around doesn't bother me too much as it's only for 2½/3 Hours max....
