Interesting choices for a wedding D90 or D200
8 months ago

I was hired by my good friend to shoot a wedding (being my first, basically free, covering travel expenses) and I was wondering a couple of things! I have a D90 which I can use the manual features well on it, but I also have access to a D200 (a friends) which I have used a lot and am also quite proficient in.

Now the wedding is a few months away so I can learn both very well in that time. My question is:

Should I use the D90 and it's superior sensor and weight for my main camera, or should I use the D200 which has a not quite as good sensor, but vastly superior manual controls?

It it an outdoor wedding and I have an SB-800 flash and a nice 50mm 1.8d lens and I probably will rent a zoom 2.8 as well!

Thanks a lot for your help!
