If cash was not an issue and the primary use is of landscapes, which body would be preferable?
I do but the boundaries are starting to blur between their use. Whereas with my D800e, it was purely static subjects and the D4s moving or low light, I'm now quite happy to use the D810 in low light( although the D4s does still have the edge in the extreme). Unlike some opinion though, the D810 autofocus for me, still isn't as quick as the D4s in fast sports such as F1 and skiing.
In regards to the lens, I got the same response recently when I was at a state park photographing a herd of bison. On either side of me were lines of people holding up cell phones to photograph the herd (with one lady holding a Nikon P&S), and there I was with a 70-200mm f/2.8 and a 2x teleconvertor. The guy next to me laughed and said "broke out the big guns, eh?"I probably got the same amount of strange looks when I was carrying my D810 with a 70-200 attached...One guy said "Got the heavy artillary out huh"?
