    possible

    i've used it before. but the banquet hall was pretty huge.

    if the hall is small...

    but first things first... why should you splurge when you're shooting for the company?

    if you're getting the equipment to shoot for the company, then it's just a waste of money if you're not going to utilize it outside of those events.

    get your company to rent or purchase the lens instead. you can get the body for your own purposes.

    hmm and not forgetting the Pentax Q. it's fantastic. with that crop factor, you don't need the 70-200

    IMO, 5D3 or even 2 with a 24-105L and a 70-200 Canon/Sigma/Tamron would be enough. Covers all the range you would ever need for your companies' events.

    (Actually, I dont really see the need for a 70-200)

    Have looked into D7000 but heard that it has AF accuracy problem and Nikon tends to have washed out and yellowish tint/cast.

    For D600, am concerned with the pricing.

    For A77, although AF is very fast and have built-in stabiliser, the lowlight high iso noise performance seems to be mediocre or bad.

    For canon, I have no idea at all.

    For Pentax, it is not so popular and not so well supported for 3rd party lenses or items. So don't think will look into it.

    Would appreciate some advice.

    Thanks.

    Will need 70-200 for sure. Even my 105 is not long enough.

    "May I check how much you selling D7000 body nowadays?"

    "D7000 outdated already sir, now got new model"

    "No need new model, shooting company events only..."

    "D7000 got AF accuracy problem, shooting company events you definitely need a better camera" - *He pulls out the golden D4 box.*

    "Works with 70-200?"

    "Works best with 70-200, but you also need the 24-70 normal zoom, and the 14-24 since your ballroom big you can use it show the grandieur of the location" *3 more golden boxes appear on the table*

    "Not me, my friend"

    "Orrhhh..." *He then keep the golden boxes back since obviously I not buying*

    That's the typical wrong way, you appear like a blur newbie without any idea what to do. No wonder the sales man can use the standard sales pitch, seasoned with hearsay.
    But a nice highlight to do homework before entering any shop.

    Read the 2nd line of my posting
    And if the sales man comes again with the AF issues you can reply: "No worries, if this happens I'll come back to you."

    sale person is still a sale person, they are not a user (most of them), which camera sell better and has more profit margin, or higher commission, they will recommend this camera.


    you should done your own homework yourself,
    make your own decision on what to get
    maybe just left a few points to clarity,
    that you can find out from other users or online

    than walk in the shop and get camera you wanted
