What an epic wedding! This was my first wedding in awhile and I was anxious to see how well the D300/D200 combo would work out. The D300 really shined, but I have to say that the D200 was really starting to show its age, especially with the high ISO noise. Nevertheless, I think the photos still turned out quite well. The Nikkor 17-55mm f/2.8 was the main workhorse throughout the day and truly proved its worth. If/when I decide to go full frame, I certainly hope that the new Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8 can live up to how well the 17-55mm f/2.8 has worked for me all this time. I debated on renting the new Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8, but as it turned out, I only found myself using the ultra-wide during the reception. On the telephoto end of things, I used the 70-200mm f/2.8 for the wedding itself, but I switched it up with the Nikkor 85mm f/1.8 for the wedding party photos and reception. I even found use for my Nikkor 60mm f/2.8 Micro at the reception as well, so the only lens I didn’t use at all was the 50mm. Time to sell it? Maybe…
