Hello all,
I currently use a D300s for the majority of my landscape work with a D7000 as my backup and whenever I am not on a tripod. Size is important, as I am usually hiking, so I want to stay relatively light. My lenses consist of a mixture of DX lenses and older (but smaller) FX lenses. Having rented the Trinity of FX lenses I came to the conclusion that as wonderful as they are, they are just too big for what I enjoy. I will remain with DX for the near and midterm future.

Given my current scenario, would there be any advantages to replacing the D300s with a D800 and using it mainly in DX mode?

I am not infected with NAS, and am not a pixel peeper, but am merely considering newer technologies for future planning.

Thank you in advance for any insights.
