I would say that wedding photography is more about organisation and relationships towards the subjects than pressing the shutter, especially so with digital and TTL flash.

I learned this lesson while pressing the shutter, and also while reviewing my photos later.  What did I miss that I could have gotten?  What views/angles worked?  How could I have positioned myself better?  Which guests should I have made a point to photograph better?  (the primary photog typically followed the bride, it was my job to make sure all the guests were in the final set of images, and to fill in the scenery he couldn't get)

That is undoubtably true; you're looking to improve your photography. Beingrequired to produce the professional results as the photographer and it's your sole responsibility to make it happen is a different thing altogether.

From your post I guess you have never been soley responsible for the successful photographic production of the 'big day'.

Another point about being 'shown the ropes' at a highly dynamic photographic event like a wedding; I wouldn't expect the person coming to learn to even bring a camera. You're not going to learn much about the sequences and nuances of the event if you're busy snapping away with your own camera.

Here are A4 and A3 printouts resolutions at fine 720dpi and superfine 1440dpi

  So from above it is clear that in fact even most Buyer sensor MF cameras can not over perform standard quality 720dpi A4 printing resolution.

I dont think you understand what those 720dpi & 1440dpi means

 ;)

It's the old dpi/ppi thing again

Perhaps the wedding photographer was not professional anyway; on the face of the OP the newly weds are going to pay twice. Unlikely. Last thing the bride is thinking about on 'the day' is taking an contact of an assistant photographer. Bit of hocus pocus maybe.

I'm just wondering how the bride was able to get in touch with the OP.............. ???

Bet you never use it  ;)
I have shoot roughly 50 rolls on a Lubi replica. But the things is so random and poorly manufactured that this is just for fun. But the way to shoot is addictive.

You did say 'dissuade me' !

~My Grandfather used a Rolleiflex in the '30s and '40s, a 'Standard' I think, and I still have the remarkable pictures that he took in the English Lake District - among others - on colour transparency. Very rare in 1936.

Mint f2.8 versions do seem to go for very high prices. If it's your thing; great. Personally I miss film like a hole in the head.

Fair enough.
How about posting the A7 with EF 24-70 sized the same as the 1Dx.
I already posted  a7R with Canon EF24-70F/2.8 M2  which shows how much it is superior compared to Sony 24-70 on a7R
It could be  easily downscaled  to the 1DX size in any photo editing program to see the difference.
Result of normalizing image to lower resolution is obvious - perceptually it will be the same or bit better  IQ only with less resolution.
So it would be a bit  better that 1Dx with Canon EF24-70F/2.8 M2

Just seen that you have obliged ! I'd already done it so here's mine. The A7r user is gonna want to print some big pictures to gain an advantage.

No worry abot handheld as shutter speed in both cases is around 1/1600 so camera vibration does not  affect results

Fair enough.

Interesting. The Sony lens is about 60% of the Canon 2.8 II price but I guess the EF 24-70 f4 IS would stand up better than this.

However beware of critical tests hand held.

This lens doesn't seem to have much of a following in this gallery. Personally I think it's a really good tool.

I don't want to be picky but I think she's lost her horn - in all the senses  ;)

Lovely shot.

I would certainly hope that Canon would release a new sensor within the 7D mkII

Given the (albeit limited) history of the 7D line I think that is quite likely the delay for the 7DII. Canon have now manoeuvred the xxD line into a position to allow for a higher end aps-c model that will be twice as expensive as the xxD yet sit just under the cheapest of the FF models. So the delay indicates to me that we are waiting for the new sensor to go with it.

I wouldn't read too much into the replacement of the 300D. Nikon were never able to meet the 7D head on for what ever reason(s). However their continuation with the model has certainly given Canon more sea room for developing the 7DII - and the 7DII is definitely coming because otherwise Canon would not have given the recent models of the  xxD line castrated EOS controls.
