I was watching a Scott Kelby video presentation he did at one of the Google+ Photography conferences and basically when he travels he has one wide-coverage zoom and that's it.

I really like the canon s100 or s110 for size and they do have fairly good iq. The fuji x20 is a bit bigger but has better iq and shoots more like a real camera. Both zooms which I think you want.

28-300 is great travel lens but it is not the sharpest nikon lens, I prefer the 24-120 for traveling, with the sensor size of d800 I digital crop it.

Shameless plug, selling my mint Nikon 60mm f/2.8D for $320 shipped CONUS.   Funding the Zeiss 100mm Makro.

I have a super clean low mileage D200 with an 18-55 VR kit lens, a card and two batteries for sale for $300 if anyone is interested.

I will be trading a bunch of favourites (28/2,8 Ai; 85/1,8K; Zeiss 35/2) for a 28-70 2,8D as the studio is demanding that I use fast AF glass. Not happy about it, especially as the new Nikkor is known to break down a lot, but the 24-70 can't be used properly with real film cameras (the small ones with great finders and no grips).

I don't really like the D800. It has a great sensor, but apart from that, its ergonomics and button layout has changed too much from the D700 to be really 'Nikon', and it has so many problems that have nothing to do with the touted AF issues.

I heard a lot of dislike on ergonomics, for me coming from D200 I have no issues on ergonomics and button layout.  The 28-70 is a great lens, always love it but never really get a chance to own one.  When I received the D800E I need a better zoom lens than my 35-70 f/2.8, the natural decision goes to the 24-70 f/2.8.

These are loud and in your face--intentionally :)
