LOL, you are right...however I have no intention burning this into a business as of yet...then again if request keep coming I might need to do something I don't know. A couple of people that I know of that do weddings in the Denver area, all either suggested the D700, D7000 as a low budget capable body...I was like "low budget?" that was high end to me lol then again..comparing it to your D3x and so on...I guess they can be in that low end bracket.
Not sure, but it just seemed like the 800 cycled faster, could just be me being a fan of the 800 so I probably have a mental imagination of it being faster. The 700 did its job all day so I was impressed, well actually only had to hang in there for 2 hours, but still lol
I'm hoping it was just batteries, read a couple of searches of the 800 actually going bad (not firing in ITTL mode) and needing to get sent in to Nikon for repairs....169 to 250 dollars in repair costs...I wouldn't mind paying that if I had it for 3 years...but considering I just got it in December, that would suck royally! I guess one of the draw backs of used equipment...that's if it does have problems. I took the same batts and tossed them in my 700 and they seem good to go. They did report the 800 having this problem on and off, then right before a shoot..no go. I also did read this thing is really temperamental to low batts...so again, I'm in hopes lol
