I am considering getting either the D3 or the D700 with the grip for my wedding/events/portrait business.

Initially, I am planning to use it with my 35-70mm push-pull (screw drive focus). Will this lens focus quickly enough for typical wedding procession shots (dim ambient with flash) where the people are moving quickly toward me?

I'll get a 24-70mm AF-S as soon as finances will allow.

How many shots can I expect per battery with the D700? With internal EN-EL3e? With grip and EN-EL4? With grip and NiMH AA's?

Thanks,

Russ
