why not? people use APS-C for weddings. there is no reason why APS-H can't do it =)

i have the 1d and 1ds mark III. 1d gets the nod for weddings and parties because it's superior at hi-ISOs and 10 mp is more than enough resolution. BTW, i'm no pro :D. i was at a wedding this summer and the main photog was using the 1d mark III and 24-105L for most of the service and all of the dinner and after wedding shots. he also owned the 5d2 but he did not want the huge files for the informal stuff.

The amazing AF and high ISO performance of the 1D Mark III make it an amazing all-rounder.

i see ,so i assume that 1dmark3 has a very FPS, that would be perfect to capture the Emotional moment , 10 megapixel is just perfect for Wedding picture quality, isn't it Crop 1.3 doesn't really bother with your wide angle primes ? like 24L ,35L or 50L ?

what do you mean by "bother you"?

of course you have to take the crop factor into account when making your lens selection. your 24 and 35mm primes are no longer wide angle. a lens like the 16-35L II will be wide enough for a wedding.

what i meant was when mount 24L or 35L on the crop 1.3 will lose that wide angle , since it's still wide when you have a full frame , like don't you feel that it would be perfect to have 5D or 1ds when using these lens ..

A 1Ds Mark II is quite the performer if you want full frame and amazing AF at the same time.

I have the 5D2 and 1D3 for weddings - I prefer FF for weddings on my lenses, but the 1D3 is far better at focusing in one shot mode...it's a ridiculous difference, the 1D3 will lock on in darkness almost instantly...the 5D2...well, it has manual focus I guess...

If you can stretch for a 1Ds3 or 1Ds2
