Re: D800 as a vacation cam?

Unless you are prepared to be THE Photographer at these events then I suggest you go with something smaller and less expensive. D7000 comes in mind. Or even a X-Pro1.

It has come to a point for me to leave my D700 at home when going on trips or parties and such. I can't seem to enjoy the event without feeling like I am the official photographer. Lugging around a huge camera at a party is a pain - especially when your not getting paid to do it. And if you put the camera down somewhere your always wondering if its safe.

I guess it would be ok for these events if your main goal is to get great pictures.

If your goal is to have a good time and pictures are only secondary then I suggest going a different route.
