    it seems that u dun have much experience in doing manual focus shoots, so i guess u better not cos you may lose precious moments as a result.

    If I m using d60 with 18-105+ sb600, is the picture quality good enough or acceptable? Escpecially during wedding dinner which might be low light condition.
    Another fren of mine will be using d60+18-55+55-200+sb600.
    Have not try d60 with 50mm which have to manual focus. Is it convenient or easy to use? Thanks !!
    If you use flash and manual focus...it would be easier(note: not "easy")...set at f8 and shoot when you see something which looks focus in your viewfinder...however, having a non-communicating lens on your D60 also means your SB600 can't tell the distance/aperture used. you will have to use in manual mode...

    *troublesome* can borrow a D50 instead of D60?

    Which is exactly why I match a flash with the slow lens to the D60. With flash, do you think it will be still be low light?

    And D60 cannot AF with 50/1.8. Have you seriously shot MF in a fast paced environment??

    Plus, D90 better high ISO performance will be perfect for shooting ambient light shots with the 50/1.8 while giving you AF with the AFD lens.

    From your questions, I really wish you good luck with the shoot. You will need lots of it. Enjoy and have fun.

    To me, with the existing gears, i will . . .
    1. D90 + 18-105mm + (need to get another flash)
    2. D60 + 50mm + SB600

    Other things that you may need :
    3. Getting additional flash for your #1 setup (stated above)
    4. Addtional Batteries / Memory Cards / Cleaning Kit / etc
    5. A wide angle lens

    If you are not familiar with Manual Mode, i will suggest you leave it out and just concentrate on your Shuttle Speed and Aperture or even Auto Mode. (don't be ashame to use auto mode, i don't see anything wrong with it)

    if require photography service . . . just PM me . . .
    Which wide angle lens do you suggest for this kind of occasions? O.o

    Here is my take.

    Just use the d90 wit 18-105mm and flash for most shots.
    U will need to take some still details like flowers, shoes, decos thus u use the 50mm

    I think this thread is not to debate how valuable are the photos to the couples. To each his own.

    Remember that the photographer is also at times a impromptu coordinator, art director, MUA.

    Have loads of fun and share ur pics.

    wide angle is good for table shoots.

    eg 24mm (good for both crop and FF) or 35mm (good for FF only).

    for this kind occasions get a wide angle prime?
    a 17-50mm can cover all right?
