I use a Canon 24-70L as my standard lens, but in truth my natural eye tends towards 70mm rather than wider. Only rarely do I use my 16-35.

One salesman at a unnamed company where I worked back in the 1970's was said to have picked a price based on the number of a railroad train car going by his window after the customer asked for a better price. He made the sale, and it was big bucks
In fact, Nikon needs to "get in the game." The D800/E did absolutely nothing for them on a large scale while the 5D Mark III did a ton for Canon on a large scale.
I found that the tripod weight was more important than mirror lockup. I have a pair of tripods.... the old heavy one moves a lot less than the new lightweight one.... but hang a weight off of the lightweight tripod and it gets very steady. I have a eyelet in the bottom of the central collumn that I attach to the camera bag with a length of light rope.... makes the setup much more stable.
surely if it was a bit windy your bag would be swaying all over the place? my tripods pretty sturdy and there was no hint of wind in my room or shake on my floor!
