Just for fun if you had $5,000.00 to put into camera gear for semi pro work, such as weddings, concerts, studio portraits, fashion and seniors, which gear would you buy?

Without a doubt for the applications you mention, I'd buy a Df with a 58 f/1.4.

Either the D610 or D800 would be appropriate, but i think excellent low-light ability of the D4 sensor, and the smaller RAW file sizes would make the Df better for high volume shooting.

Sorry that I'm in the wrong forum, but that's what I would buy. I used to shoot Olympus 43 and one of my first digital cameras was the excellent E620. I can't imagine why Olympus bailed on the excellent Four Thirds system, it is such a pity to let all of those Four Thirds lenses go to waste.

But anyway, with $5000 that what I would buy. YMMV.
