New D800 or used D3s?
Feb 10, 2014


I'm currently using a D700 as my main camera and a D7000 as backup. I'm going to ditch the D7000, degrade the D700 to backup and get me a new main body. I have boiled it down to either a brand new D800 or a used D3s - both cost about the same.

I shoot mostly weddings and portraits for paid work and landscapes for leisure. Is there anyone here that can give me some insight and opinions? I know the spec differences, I'm mostly interested in the practical aspects. I shoot a lot in murky old churches with fast F1.4 lenses, so good low light AF and high ISO is a plus for me.
