    D'oh! Yes, I meant the the Nikkor 17-35mm f2.8D ED-IF AF-S.

    (I have the 17-55 and the 70-200 for my D2X)

    I carry the F100, N80, and FM10... with usually the 85mm 1.8, 28mm lens although sometimes will change out to the 28-70mm and the 70-300mm for those times I'm banished to the balcony or just want to get some candids from afar. I bought the FM10 to replace my Pentax K1000 which I loved. Sometimes if some slow moments, may pull out my Mamiya for some photos.

    I really like and use the F100. It is just about everything the F5 is, and considerably smaller and easier to mount onto a flash bracket. And with the MB-15 accessory grip attached, you've essentially got an F5, with a vertical shutter release too. My main wedding glass is the 28-105 and a quality 20-40mm AF. I use lithium batteries in my bodies and in my SB-600 & SB-800. Extremely quick recycling time and they last much longer than alkalines. I've also got an N90s & FE-2 as backups. Both do very well for wedding work.

    Here are the Nikkor lenses I use for 35mm wedding candids (I normally use medium format for the formal shots):

    a) 35mm f1.4 with shade
    b) 85mm f1.8 with shade
    c) 105mm f2.8 with shade (for individual portraits)
    d) 24mm f2 with shade (for large group shots)
    e) 180mm f2.8 (optional)
    f) 35-70mm f2.8

    Nikon F5 verses F100 for weddings:

    1. With the F5, you can shoot ground level shots with a waist level finder or a right angle finder.
    2. With the F100, you can only use a right angle finder to shoot ground level shots.
    3. There are times when you may find it useful to use a sports/action view finder. This can be done with the F5 but not with the F100.
    4. Occasionally, the 100% viewfinder accuracy of the F5 can be useful for critical compositional framing.
    5. The heavier weight of the F5 may be useful for minimizing camera shake when shooting handheld in dim light without a flash.
    6. The smaller size of the F100 may attract less attention when shooting candids.
    7. I have never needed to use mirror lockup during a wedding but if you did, the F5 has it while the F100 does not.
    8. The smaller size and lighter weight of the F100 makes it easier to use for an extended period of time.

    unohuu,

    Instead of getting an F100 and an F5, have you also considered getting two F100 bodies or two F5 bodies instead?

    Hi
    I worked for years with an F5 and F100 and an FM2 Titan the last only for B/W.
    I used the older small and not havy 28-70 f 3,5 on the F5 and the heavier f 2,8 24-70 Sigma on the F100 and also the 2.8 80-200 on the F 100. I also used in the churches for large overviews a 20mm prim lens.
    2 F5s are to heavy for a whole day shooting in my opinion!
    Then I would prefer 2 F100 because I get older.
    Good light and nice shadows!

    I have never owned an F5, however I did have an F100. The circuitry of the F100 is more modern on the F100 if you are planning on using any newer Nikon speedlights. It has a good weight as well which is great when having to hold the camera for 6 hours. It is a solid camera and the prices are dropping. You might be able to pick up a new F100 and a mint condition FM2 for about the same price you would pay for a mint condition F5. The FM2 is a must have in my opinion because it is the ultimate indestructible Nikon. No batteries needed when all else fails.

    Marko,

    Have you ever shot a wedding?
