So I used my D800 at a wedding for the first time last weekend as my primary camera, been using it on engagement shoots every weekend for the last 2 months.

In Daylight the D800 is amazing ! I freaking love it !
In the Church and at reception ... I hate it !!

High ISO capabilities of the D800 was just not good enough !
Because of the low light I got a lot of soft or slightly out of focus pictures.

The reasoning for wanting and having 36mp goes right at the door once you start taking pictures in low light with ISO higher than 1000, My photos dont look any better than it did with a D7000.

I think the killer combination for weddings is a Nikon D3s / D4 and a D800.
D3s / D4 for in the church and reception hall and the D800 for Formal photos in daylight in the park or wherever.


I will be using a D3s as primary in the church and reception hall and my D800 as secondary in church, wont even take it out of the bag at the reception hall.
My D800 will be the camera i take all my formal photos with between ceremony and reception.
