Going from D800 to D3s..... Am I Crazy??
Feb 7, 2013

Hey folks, 
I've been using a D800 since last year April, but have always struggled a bit in my workflow with the huge files.  With the continuously falling memory prices of HDs it's really not too much of a problem, but rather just an inconvenience.  
Recently, I had the chance to play around with a friend's D3s.  Never really looked into the camera before, but I gotta say that I loved the handling, and the output.  So now I've been looking for a good, used D3s and am seriously considering "trading" my D800 for a D3s.  I shoot a lot of events (Weddings, Concerts, Festivals, etc.), so a fast workflow and good low-light ability is a major plus for me.  I loved the workflow I had with the D700.  I have to do a fair bit of traveling for photo gigs as well, so I like the physical size of the D800.  Ideally I'd like to have a lower Mpix camera with great low-light ability in a D800 body, but you can't have your cake and eat it too, right?  
So do you think it would be a good idea for me to trade in the D800 for a D3s?  Or am I just thinking too much?
