I'm retiring my trusty D2X and will soon be in the market for a backup camera body to my main D300s.
What do most of you guys have as your backup/2nd body? Either lens attached at all times and slung over the other shoulder or just sitting around in the bag as a standby.
I've seen many pro event photographers going around with D3s + D700 and the Canon equivalents these days (1Ds + 5Dmk2 ?)
Yet I've also observed when I attend my friends or relatives weddings that some pros use rather old bodies as their main camera to shoot! Like D80, D200 even.
Does anyone use backup or 2nd camera bodies equivalent to at least a Nikon D90 or Canon 50D? Or is this a range that we as paid photogs avoid completely? Or anyone using even more basic than these?
Pls share yr views and thoughts.
