I have D800. I find it hard to shoot indoors without a flash using nikon 24-70. Don't even think about shooting d800 freehand slower than 1/125th of a second without VR. Outside the 24-70 at 1/500th of a second or faster works very well. I absolutely love 70-200 VR2 on the d800. I still have not tried 14-24 on it, but that is not a lens you would use for most weddings anyways. If you going to shoot d800 get a mono-pod for indoor shots or 70-200 vr2 in decent light might cut it.

I don't think you completely get this so i'll put you right. You said don't even think of using 1/125th? You have no mention of focal length. Actually, with a 14-24 you could easily use this speed and get sharp shots if your good. At 70mm, likely you still could depending on alot of other factors like subject motion, your handholding ability etc etc.. It is totally related to focal length and final output size. You can't just come here making blanket sweeping statements like "don't shoot the D800 under 1/125," it's pretty misleading to others.
