I've used the camera once for a friends wedding last April.

I'm not a wedding photographer but a PJ, I've made also images at high iso during the party at night,, reduced to about 4500px widest, it gives very good image quality at ISO 6400 in relation to noise.

Oh, and I did use optical focusing (mostly 21 and 9 in C)

Camera is focusing very well even in dark situations, as long as you stay away (at least on mine) from the outer left focus points in combination with wide angle lenses.

Now that it's been out a few weeks, I'm wondering how many out there have shot one or more weddings with it. If so,

  • What would you say are its strengths and weaknesses, taking into account the entire workflow, from capture to delivered photo?

  • What other cameras, if any, did you use during the same shoot, and what criteria did you use to select one camera vs. the other for a given shot?

  • What other impressions did you come up with that you would want others considering the D800 for wedding photography to know?
