Just want to know whether anyone here is using a D90 as back-up on their D700 esp for long trips ?
Currently have a D700 and planning out of town trip.
A few of my friends who are Canon users usually have a full frame camera + a non-full frame.

For example, few carry their EOS 5d Mk2 with a 24-70 f2.8L and on their back-up like a EOS 40D with a 70-300 IS lens.

What you guys think about that ?

Another option for me is to buy a point and shot like a Panasonic Lumix LX3 for a back-up & use it for the wides. That way when i travel, its light and I can use the 70-300 VR lens on the D700 and the wides on the lumix. this way also I dont run the risk of getting dust in my sensor changing lens on my D700.

Looking forward to some opinions here.
