My D800 should arrive tomorrow. I have multiple lens (Nikon) and trying to figure out what to take on our "trip of a lifetime" to Europe (Germany, Austria, France, & England).
I was thinking of only taking the 28-300 VR and my 85mm 1.4G.
I was going to use the 85mm for a long shot I was going to take of Neuschwanstein (think Walt's basis for his Sleeping Beauty castle), and other "high-profile" landmarks; the zoom for everything else. After reviewing a thread here on the 28-300 on the D800, I'm now worried where to go. Anyone have landscape experience with the 28-300 yet?

Now thinking of taking (none of which have VR):
24-70 2.8G
85mm 1.4G
105mm AF-DC f2D
I'm 57 with very slight case of shaky hands (so need to bump speed a little or use VR).

I have a backpack, but was hoping to keep the weight down. 85mm & 24-70 will cause back problems I believe. But I don't want to lose great shots for this trip... Am I over-reaching???

Note- Have a graduation in Calif. coming up in the next couple weeks, so was going to try the 28-300 at Disneyland. Will evaluate results from that and replies to this thread. Thanks!!
