I've just been booked to do my first wedding for a couple of years, and so have a dilemma on whether to (a) either upgrade / sideways move from my D80 to something more predictable on the metering front (D300 or D200) or (b) add some faster glass (Tamron 17-50 springs to mind + a 90mm or 105mm prime). Indeed, for the price of the D300, I could get a lightly used D200 and a new Tamron 17-50mm and have change left over. In either case, I'd keep the D80 as backup until after the event. On the lens front, I'd probably be using the 18- 70mm, - a touch slow I know, and / or 28-105mm nikkors plus the 70-210 nikkor for long shots if I made no changes. I have a flash bracket & bounce flash adaptors plus an SB600 (could also benefit from more flash power). It's a Sikh wedding (just like my last one), so it will be colourful and fast moving (& noisy). The emphasis on these kind of weddings tends to be more on capturing who was there for sharing with friends & family (often overseas) and on the feel & colour of the event rather than on a more stylised or 'artistic' approach. In fact one of the really positive things from the previous wedding was that people were delighted that they had photographs of themselves that they did not realise had been taken (with a 70-210 lens). I'm going to have to accept that the D80 replacement will not be available in time (wedding is in mid September), so have to work with what's available now. Suggestions / experiences welcome!
