hi Stan, your comment is really relevant, and i think it's the main point of the choice. For every day photography, a D7000 + 18/105 is easier to carry and use than a D800 + pro lenses. it is useless to own the best gear and let it at home because of the weight. I take my D800 + 70/200 almost everywhere with me, but that's not really easy. to ease that, I have purchased a small but very handy backpack: a Lowepro flipside 200. I can put the combo + my 50 mm 1.8 if needed. Fabien.
