When I picked up the D700, I had intended to keep my D200 as a spare for paid shoots (architectural). Though I got great use out of my D200 for the last few years, it’s not nearly as enjoyable to use than the D700 for my type of commercial shooting, especially now that I have a full compliment of FX f2.8 zooms and fast primes.

I am not a full time photographer; I finance my fine art shooting (and my NAS!) with a small number of paid architectural shoots a year. Because of this, I can’t justify another D700 as a backup.

How often have any of you needed a backup camera at an indoor shoot? I generally don’t get rained on, attacked by tigers (or bride’s mothers), or capsize in the Amazon when I shoot designer houses and art galleries...

Thanks!
Best,

Ted

Shoot first; process later.
