You'll have to forgive me this post because it's probably going to get very technical. This weekend I've rented what I consider to be the "wedding kit" - a full-frame body with excellent low-noise high-ISO capacity - here the Nikon D3. This combination of lenses totally blows me away compared with what I normally use. I have a nickname for my regular gear, too - my "bang around" stuff. Not that there is anything wrong with the Nikon D80. In most cases, you wouldn't even be able to tell the difference between the two cameras. It's when things get tricky that the camera really shines. Like here: ISO: 3200!, 1/25 s, f/2.8, 70mm This image would probably not happen at all with my D80. It's just too dark in my apartment hallway to get something sharp. 70mm and 24mm of the same scene: I walked the camera around. It's cold out! And yes, I can't help myself.
