>I picked events/family as that covers most if not all of my >photos I take.
. . . and I used to think that was a bit off-track for a camera as powerful as a D700 or D800, until I started deliberately looking for such collections posted online. What I discovered was that dedicated family and related event photographers were doing some remarkable things - everything from passionate photo documentaries, wonderfully rendered presentations of special events (graduations, convocations, confimations, bar mitzvahs, school track meets, and on and on and on), to the most simple and dramatic family portraits I could imagine, all in ways I'd never before considered. Turned out that the most advanced Nikon bodies were/are being perfectly well used.
