Hey, how about renting the body for the trip? Might be an option.

Thought about that... But that will only make me want to buy it when I get back and I won't be able to afford it then and I'll ramp my credit card way too high and pay for it in the end...

Gotta try and be a responsible adult... Lol.

THere is something to be said for utilizing what you have. When I traveled overseas the first time, my D70 was more than enough! ;) THis past time, the D300 was enough and still gave me the res and quality I needed to make canvas prints. And the nice thing about using your old standby is that you KNOW all about it. Maybe it will even give you a little more comfort to enjoy the moment rather than worrying about dropping a new body or rented lens =D

ETA: If you don't have a super wide DX lens, something like this might be just what you need.

B&H charges no tax and has free next day delivery according to their web site.
I did see on black Friday many were getting NIkons with free battery packs. Not sure if that deal can be found anywhere now

I saw this too but if I recall it wasn't for the D850.

I'll take a look into this though. Maybe I can get a good deal on this.

After I ordered the D850 on December 19th I have officially been notified that my order has shipped and will be in tomorrow.

EEK!!! I can't wait!!! As soon as I get it in my hands I'll change my white shirt out for a blue one again. ;)
