I find a D7000 sigma 17-70 combo really works well for event shooting. For what I do, it mostly ends up being web displayed (1000-1200px size) and there is no real need for extra shallow DOF shots, beyond what can be done with this combo. It does low light well enough, has plenty of resolution for cropping and doesn't have the bulk that a FX solution would have when I have used FX for this type of stuff. If I need more range, I usually bring a 80-200 f2.8 in the bag along with an SB700.

Anyone else shooting events feel DX is plenty good even if they own FX gear as well?
