Re: Why is D700 $500 More than D800?

A 12mpix camera is enough, but IMO why not look at the D610?  The sensor is highly rated, and shooting in a bar you are not needing a D4.  The D800 is overkill unless you do a lot of crops, or want to make billboards.

If it were me I would spend the money on strobes and do some creative lighting.  I have no idea exactly what you are looking for but if your samples are representative of what you want then strobes are exactly what you need.   Bars have notoriously bad light so using strobes is a very good way to light.

Cameras are fun, but light is everything in photography.
