D300 or D300s Vs Canon 5d M1 For Weddings and Portraits
Nov 4, 2010

Hi, I am torn on selling my 5d M1 and equipment and switch back to Nikon.

I org used to shoot weddings with a d80 which I know is not quite a pro camera to do weddings with, so I sold and bought a 5d. I do love a lot of my photos with the 5d and super sharp of course..... but its a bit crazy cause it really dont like to focus on moving objects very well, seems to like to focus on everything else than what I want it to.

I had the 18-200mm VR lens with my d80 and loved it.. Seems funny that a lot of my photos with the d80 are better than my 5d, except for low light with the high ISO and hardly any noise I get with the 5 d.

So I am wondering if it will be worth it just to get rid of the 5d and switch back to a Nikon... D300 or D300s.... I care less about video...I would go for a D700 but I just cant afford it with decent lenses.

I miss the 18-200mm VR and thinking of buying the older 35-70mm 2.8 lens and of course the 50mm 1.4 lens

Any ideas or suggestions??

Thank you
