Been banging around with this and thought I'd ask for some opinions...
I'm traveling to Europe for my first time for a week, three cities in 6 days, starting in London. Traveling light so limiting myself to one body and (gulp) one lens, sb800(?) and iPad. Converters a plenty. 4-rechargeable AA's, mini tripod, Polarizer and ND, in back back. Knowing crop factor and DX-FX differences, do I go with the D700 body and 18-200 or my friends D3100 and the same lens. I cant carry the 24-70 and 70-200, thats more than double the weight! Side note: I carry my Sony T-9 which, if I do say so, captures some very nice HD Video. Mind you I am still a stills guy...

Thanks in advance for the thoughts and help. Any input on where to go while in Ghent and Brussels would be appreciated, along if you have any good websites insouldmperuse before my departure.

Thanks again,
