So what CR Admin is saying is that it's the number of posts not the quality that counts??? While many of the top contributors have really valuable input, it's easy for anyone to just say "nice picture" or something equally unmeaty to boost their post counts and enter exclusive circles. Really??
Ok, I gots a total noob question to ask, having never done anything like this shot.
Could this have been shot as a pano? Is that ever a good technique for these wide group shots?
Nooblet minds want to know.

You are brave to use a manual focus lens for a wedding!
I think I'll consider getting the 24mm 1.4 II lens for the next one.
Most venues require liability insurance in case guests damage private property. The wedding party provides that insurance. You have to document the incident and the bridal party's insurance should cover damage done by an inebriated guest.
Again back to damaging your reputation.... I would pursue it through your insurance first. While the brides insurance might cover it, they will possibly be anywhere from hesitant to peeved at using it on your account.
I would check with the newlyweds first (or parents, if they're already off on honeymoon), to see if they have this kind of coverage. I can't imagine why they would be peeved; it's one-off coverage, not ongoing like car insurance. If I were the groom and my photographer came to me with this kind of claim and I had purchased the insurance, I would welcome a claim (unless I was liable for any deductible), because then the price of the premium wasn't wasted.
If I inquired and the bride & groom did not have this coverage, I would just tell them OK, thanks, and then take it up with my own insurance provider.
I gotta throw out an apology to the OP because unfortunately it appears that this thread has (yet again) devolved into a Mac vs PC debate and I don't think the OP has received much in the way of useful advice about his request. I started out just wanting to counter the all too common 'Mac just works' lines and ended up writing a dang novel and falling into the tempting debate trap.
I don't think we went THERE per se. He got the standard advice:
1) A desktop is more powerful
2) Some useful hardware suggestions
3) Some specific suggestions of systems
All we're missing is the "You should get Linux" guy. Otherwise, it was pretty civilized and tame
You reliably post these shady web sites selling expensive cameras for minimal discounts. Here is my question. If you are prepared to shell out 5k for a camera body, would you spend a little bit more and purchase it from a reliable retailer, or save a few bucks on one of these gimmicks.. Why even post deals if they are not from reputable camera shops / retailers?
