Both. But you'd only take one of them up a mountain.

they have that ultra impressive level of sharpness/contrast that no zoom can quite touch
you'd clearly need to leave your tri-cams at home
Quote2 x 24-70mm F2.8 zooms1 x 14-24mm F2.8 zoom1 x 50mm F1.4 primeThat's interesting, considering you've had chance to try a lot of them out. What are you shooting mostly, events? No portrait lenses, or do you just hire a 70-200/2.8?Quotethey have that ultra impressive level of sharpness/contrast that no zoom can quite touchYeah, a few of my old OM manual lenses have that. Its frustrating to have to take a step down in quality and up in bulk.Had a play with shooting tethered via Lightroom 3 today, works great. Will be using again, for sure.Quoteyou'd clearly need to leave your tri-cams at homeIf I'm going light, I just take tricams.
(did you see the DIY photography article on making a wireless-tether, pretty funky)
but primes just aren't practical for events a lot of the time
Bit of googling suggests this?Keen to see some of your stuff, got a site? You done any climbing photography yet?
And ISO 12800

To illustrate the point about bigger cameras not necessarily equaling (or indeed required for) bigger image quality, here's a couple of crops from a review of the panasonic m4/3 20mm lens on an EP2. Compared to D3s with a 50mm 1.8 (a very sharp lens), same raw processor for both, both 12mp, both same base ISO, (almost same aperture for both shots, 1/3 of a stop difference cos the guy fucked up).center crop:The questions is, which ones of those images is "pro quality"?http://www.stevehuffphoto.com/2010/01/18/the-pansonic-lumix-g-20-1-7-lens-review/
Even when downsampling my shots to give an equivalent pixel pitch of the D3X
