when I was using D70 shooting weddings, that was the latest and most popular DSLR at that time
anyway, that depends on who is using it, don't be surprise D700 can also deliver crap photos.
I eats, shoots & leaves
wedding photos is for wedding couple,
so if you can know what kinds of wedding photos will make them tick, and you can provide why they want, wedding couples book you straight away.
does your wedding couples care about what camera and lenses you use? if yes, than buy the cameras and lenses that make them tick.
does your wedding couples only want cheap and good? if yes, be the cheapest photographer in town.
the list can just go on and on, so just go and find out what your wedding couple want.
Take a look at this article:
Kevin Kubota, world renowned top ten wedding photographers of the world, use a D70 as second body in 2006.
Even in 2009, he uses a D90 for the second body.

You want to judge other people by equipment, other is going to judge yours.
Looking at your equipment listed in your signature, very mediocre also.
nobody is going to say "which camera you take this photo with?" when they see nice photo. except gear heads who think getting great gear is the only way to getting nice photo.
However, for pros, unless you have a big reputation with you, you have to have some "window dressing". Today, DSLRs/cameras are so prevalent that even a non-photographer knows what is "pro-looking" equipment and what is not. If you are in the business, you have to at least "look" the part. Just my 2 cents... I am of course not in the business.
but we all know even the most awesome "computer" will not show it full potential without any appropriate "software".
when we have some advance and powerful "software", we will need to upgrade our "computer" accordingly, else, we can't make full use of the "software" we have.
so for working photographers, getting reliable, suitable gear come naturally, and the gears will just make their life easier and bring out their best.
back to the original post about using iphone to shoot weddings,
have any of you ever thought about why the wedding couples want their wedding photos to be shot with iphone?
this photographer clearly understand that, so he able to find the right wedding couples hiring him.
so what if you also want to shoot weddings with iphone, are you try to convince your wedding couple this is an "in" thing? or finding customers looking for wedding photos that close to their heart?
Even if it does catch up with the current dslr technology, but when u thought u r going to have the perfect shot....
