I ordered a D800 but I am still not convinced I made the right choice !
The D4 and the D800 sounds like they will be a killer combination for wedding photography but unfortunately buying both of them is out of my budged.

I need a new FX camera no matter what as a main camera! I can either use my D7000 as a second camera but I think I will most probably replace my D7000 with the D400 once it comes out.

Right now I am struggling with my D800 decision and thinking that maybe I should rather get the D4 and then have a D4 as a main body and D400 as secondary.

My reason for thinking this is that I am wondering how close the D800 and D400 will be in specs, I am sure the D400 wont be higher than 20 to 25mp so I am wondering if the two cameras will be very much the same except for the MP's and the FX to DX.

Any wedding photographers out there that can give me advice on what to do ?
