I used to use RZ67's for wedding work but that was in the days when most shots were done on a tripod using hand-held meters - the metering prism wasn't accurate enough for wedding work. I quickly reverted back to the Hasselblad 500ELX which had TTL flash metering which was perfect for fill-in flash. The RZ's were nice in a studio situation though.

These days I have a H3DII-39 'Blad but there is no way I would try and shoot a wedding with it. Your D3 and D700 are pretty much as good as it gets for wedding work (except for a D4). Hell, I wouldn't even use the D800E I picked up today - simply not worth the post-processing effort using 36Mp files!
