I'm lucky enough to have acquired a d700, d300 and d90 over the past couple of years, and a full kit of fx pro zooms (from 24 to 200mm), along with the 24-85mm 2.8-4 and 70-300mm vr fx's, and the 10.5, 18-55mm vr and 18-200mm vr dx's. I acquired the d90 and 18-55mm with the intention of using them as my "walk-arounds" -- I don't like extra weight, if I'm not on a specific photo outing -- the plan was to sell the d300.

We're now planning a trip to South Africa, and I'm having second thoughts over giving up my d300. I'm also feeling the "need" to acquire the 200-400mm. Honestly, my equipment far exceeds my skill. Logically, I thought I'd take my d700 mounting my 24-70, and either one of the dx's mounting the 70-300. I thought I'd also probably take either my 24-85 (for the 700) or my 18-55 (for the dx) in my bag for walking around towns and villages.

Questions -- (1) do I sell the 300, as originally planned; or take it with me; (2) thoughts on the lenses; (3) do I take the plunge on the 200-400; (4) is my wife right that I'm crazy? I posted here because I'd like the views of those with you with 700s.

PS - Scratch (4) -- I know the answer...
