I know this is an obscure question. I leave tomorrow for Japan and I will be attending a sumo match. It is a business trip, but I plan on bringing my d800 and two lenses. I can't fit more than two, and they have to be fairly light and compact.

I was planning to bring my 50 f1.8 and my 70-200 f4. No way I can bring my 70-200 f2.8, as I cannot carry it with my business stuff.

Other options could be 28-300, Zeiss 35 f1.4, 24-120 f4, 85 f1.8. I also have 1.7 TC.

I am afraid the light will be poor. I suspect we have good seats.

I know it's a crapshoot, but anyone been to a sumo match and tried to take photos?
