Hi All!

This is going to be a 2 part post.

First, the obvious (based on the title) My wife shoots with a D750. I need to upgrade my camera, and I'm torn between the three listed above. The 750 shoots quite well - we've been very impressed. Is it worth the extra money to go with the 800 or the 810? Any Pros/Cons? Words of advice? We solely shoot weddings and engagements.


Second, what would you say is your favorite "money lens"? The one where you can hold your camera up in the air, at a 45 degree angle, and in poor lighting and still somehow get an amazing picture with? I'm partial to primes, but I am in the market for a zoom at the moment.

Thanks!
Shawn

D810 is a way better body. An 810 and a 750 between you two would be a great duo.

As above really i shoot with both and i have had a D800 before the D810. The D810 is a great portrait camera the D750 is a great all rounder... if the shutter on the D750 went up to 1/8000 I would have 2 x D750s every day of the week. If your wife shoots with the D750, I would go with the D810. I preferred the D810 over the D800 as the shutter is noticeably softer and dampened and the grip is different - in a good way..

If weddings are your primary goal, get the D750. Unless you want to invest in large CF cards for the D800/D810. I'm a sucker for 135mm F2 (Samyang and Canon versions though).

D810 easily.

I love both my 24-70 and 58 1.4. In poor lighting, you can have a 200 f2 and still get a crap photo. Great lighting/ average lens > poor lighting/amazing lens

All 3 are great.


D750 PRO's
EV -3
dual SD's
smaller/ligther
recalls (be sure their done)


D810
Build quality is a lot better IMHO
"pro" controls the top left dial
EV -2
more mega pixels for cropping larger prints
no AA filter
OLED display compared to the D800
crop mode with a battery grip decent FPS

Their both great and I have had both. Right now I"m keeping the D810 and sold the D750. The prices used for a D810 an dD750 are getting pretty close too.

A quick question here...just wondering 'when' one would use a shutter speed about 4,000? I've never found the need to ever even be close to 4000, so where is the need for it?

Thank you!

I thought I'd ask....although I know the D810 has a much higher resolution, for those that need the ability for printing large size images it's a good thing indeed, but just how many folks actually do so?
Also, is there a noticeable difference in an image between these two cameras regarding the AA filter? Just wondering if the two cameras are side by side taking the same image, after post...is there a noticeable difference in the image at all? Especially if both are sized similarly?

Thanks!

Don't make the assumption that because you don't need it, nobody needs. it. There are many cases where shooting at 1/8000 is useful. Shooting with wide aperture lenses under strong sun will easily go to 1/8000. Using sunny 16, f/2 is already over 1/4000.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

What do you shoot? I shoot people, so having more megapixels doesn't matter to me. I've printed 20x30 family portraits with 12 MP files and all looked fine and my clients were happy. I own the D750 and I've shot both the D800 and D810. I also shoot events and corporate meetings, so the D800 would be out for me. The shutter sound of that camera is too loud for me in those situations. The D810 shutter sound is easily the quietest of the bunch, but the D750 is quiet enough. I don't shoot video, so those features do play a role in choosing bodies for me. The location of the controls are different for sure, but to me that doesn't make one better than the other. Again, just different. Handle them both and whichever speaks to you, get it. I like the heft and feel of the 810, but my budget (and household harmony) keeps me in the 750 (and D500). Works for me. As far as the zoom lens you mentioned, when I mount the Nikon 70-200 VR II to my D750, I feel like I can accomplish anything!
