Sorry to add this annoying wrinkle, Mark, but cannot resist. Like you, I am a serous hobbyist with an engaging day job that limits matters. However, I want the best chance I can get for the wildlife, travel, and landscape photography that both I and my wife enjoy. We have gone on a variety of exotic trips as well, and for those, the cost of gear pales in relation to the unique experiences entailed. In short, I ultimately upgraded from a D300 to both a D4 and D800. I travel with both and typically have both on board during travels, often hanging by both shoulders and/or a belt-harness system. The D4 typically with 70-200 (sometimes with a 1.4xTE as well), while the D800 has the 24-120 or 16-35. I never looked back, enjoy both for reasons noted by others, and love the properties of each while exploiting them fully. They work together like two hands, and I would not wish to go back to one or the other alone. Even my wife travels with two bodies now. In the field it is often impossible to predict what takes place, and it is terrific to be able to accommodate variety in real time. We may never return to the Amazon, or to Iceland, but we gave it our best shot.....

Cheers
