    Yep. The 24-85 lenses pair quite well with the D6xx too. Perfect size and weight.

    :p - I can post one.

    and thank you, it's one of my favorite cat pics -- but I get so sad when I look at pictures of all my past friends :(

    I am inclined to go with the 24-120, and is the lens that I would get with a D750.

    BUT, think about the total weight of the D750 + 24-120. Then think about how you will feel after a week or two of carrying it around. It is for this reason that I like the idea of a lighter "walk about" lens for long trips, where the weight at the end of 2 weeks becomes significant. And the weight will feel even heavier, if you go to hot and humid DisneyWorld/Epcot in FL vs, Disneyland in CA.

    Also do you expect your wife to shoot some of the pix?
    If so, will the D750 + 24-120 be too heavy for her?

    I'm used to traveling with my D610, 24-70, and 70-200 in a bag so....

    with that said, the a6000 was a very nice reprieve.

    Ah but B, I am pretty sure you are much younger than me, and can carry the extra weight.
    I could do that in college, but those days are long behind me. Now weight is a consideration.
    I would love to be able to carry a FX body + both f/2.8 lenses, but my back has other ideas.
    Getting old sucks.

    Socks made 30 years ago were of higher quality.

    (I’m guessing...I turned 31 today, haha)

    Oh yeah, Kevlar socks. Very comfortable and bulletproof! Or cat proof.
