I find specially interesting the work of Marco Vernaschi. He is a World Press Photo Award in 2010 (amongst others) with this report: West Africa`s new achilles` heel. Maybe this photographer could be interesting for those Nikonistas who (like me) are still "stucked" to b&w film and MF cameras; this work has a somewhat solvent action for me. The article published in the Nikon Pro Magazine mention his bag... two D3, 17-35, 50AFS, 105VR and a SB800. It looks to be the right, minimal choice for this kind of work (personally I`d trade the D3 for D700). Just to mention that many of his photos has been taken with the 50AFS, something not so common these days, I guess. (BTW, I bet those who like this lens will want the new 35AFS, too).
