    It appears there's a Nikon for sale in our classifieds for cheap, never hurts to have a backup.

    Looking at your lens list...might not hurt to have a moderate wide angle, too.

    If it's a wedding I'd say a wide angle is pretty much mandatory.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    Get an F100 as a back-up or main rig. I actually find the F100 to be the better rig for weddings.

    I second the buying a backup camera. With two- you not only have a back up, you now have 72 frames before a reload, and/or you can have two different stocks loaded at one time. One black and white, one color....or whatever.

    As for the batman utility camera belt idea- I've made one of those for my Bronica, yes you look a little strange (I ceartainly feel strange when I wear it) but it is nice to have.

    And I dont know if they are still available now, but I remember seeing ads for formal dress vests that were made for wedding photographers. They were photo vests designed to go with your tux.

It was an outdoor wedding so I was able to switch cameras at will, and swap lenses between cameras. (I think I would have gotten confused if I used two identical bodies)
    Whatever works for each photographer but when I used to shoot motorsports I always carried two Canon T90s. The idea was when the main body broke (never happened) I could switch to the backup without any hesitation or thought. After many events without any problems I ended up usually loading different films (or the same with different lens choices) in each and designating the different film type with colored tape.

    I have an N80 which will do just fine for photographing. As long as you have the glass.

    Second that idea of an F90. They're downright cheap on the used market and a darned fine camera too. Probably cost you less than the rental of an F5 for the day and you'll have it always as a backup.

    The 20mm should be wide enough for wedding work. I love burning Neopan 400CN for wedding work. I rate it @ 250 for that type of shooting. Great results.

    I would imagine that the 20mm is wide enough. I'm thinking a moderate wide angle could come in handy. Something to fill the gap, like say a 28.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.
