Getting a D750 and 24-120mm might be a good idea in regards to financial loss, but there are a couple of reasons that you may want to rethink this idea. Firstly the controls of the D750 and the D850 aren't quite the same. I swapped from the D750 to the D850 and on the whole prefer the D850, however I prefer the metering button being on the right side of the camera like it is on the D750. With the D750 you can assign the record button to change ISO and this was better than having a dedicated ISO button for me as now the record button has no useful assignable feature for me (why they don't allow you to assign metering mode to this is beyond me). Also, the 24-120mm doesn't resolve the detail of the high res cameras as well as other lenses such as the 24-70mm f2.8. For example the 24-70mm and 24-120mm f4 score 17 and 14 Mpix sharpness respectively according to DXO. However on the D800E (unfortunately DXO haven't got around to testing on the D850 yet) the 24-70mm gains 4 Mpix in sharpness, rising to 21, whilst the 24-120mm only gains 1 Mpix rising to 15. Not the end of the world obviously, but just thought it was worth mentioning. I was happy with the 24-120mm f4 on my D750 but did swap it for the 24-70mm when I bought the D850 as I didn't want to spend all that money on a new camera with all that potential resolution and get no benefit from it.I think I'm one of the latter! It took me years moving from Contax to Canon, but that involved the move from film to digital as well. I'm sure it will/would be quite difficult at first. I was thinking of taking the plunge with something like a d750 and a 24-120 zoom at first which wouldn't be too much of a loss financially if I had to sell them on again. I would keep thelens and the d750 as a second body if I moved to the d850.
