For weddings I guess the 800 E may be an overkill due to large files (L) 7,360 x 4,912

There is no problem .You can set the FX-fomat to (M) 5,520 x 3,680 or (S) 3,680 x 2,456for a smaller file

Most wedding photographers use RAW so this isn't an option unfortunately.

In fact the wedding photographer that doesn't use raw, is not a "photographer" at all....

Hello Theodoros

I guess that assertion can be mostly applied due to competition and the technical advancements today but we were "photographers" when we shot transparencies instead of negatives. I am confidant a talented shooter could get away with jpg files on a wedding and have very pleased customers. That photographer would just be limiting themselves further potential with raw but I'm sure they could still cut the mustard and be considered a photographer. I'm sure you will point out what I might be missing which I will enjoy realizing.

Take Care,

John R
