    Did you line the shot up before you realised? I once did that, luckily one person had a single box, distributed to the right people we got the shot but it was very nearly an embarrassing moment :LOL:

    I used to be at 1/160, then 1/200. But the 750s ISO is so good that 1/250 is fine. But I am a prime shooter usually around f2. Suspect if you shoot zooms you may have to drop that a bit.

    It's a lovely lens, getting some really nice results with that focal length

    I found the exact same thing, also mostly a prime shooter so never found it to be a problem. I had it set the same on my old D3 and that was fine so D750 is cleaner at comparable ISO!

    This is the exact reason that I’ve bought my own confetti for my own wedding, distributed by ushers; Taking no chances :LOL: I’m hoping our photographer appreciates it, he did appreciate me explaining the ceremony lighting :LOL:

    I'm up in the Highlands, Alfie was born in September and when he was allowed out walking it's when we had all the snow in 2009 so he's always loved the cold even though it looks unpleasant for him to slide along the ice and stick his head in it:

    I think it's only two stops faster at the maximum setting so I do the same as you when I want really high shutter speeds and set a higher base ISO

    My auto ISO lives at 0.7 - 12,800 at 1/250 second unless I’m out in constant weather - then I’ll try and shoot at lowest ISO I can. Used to shoot a bit slower but as others have said noise is so good with the D750 I don’t have to worry too much.

    Auto ISO won't choose less than 100 though will it?

    Erm, i'm sure you can pick lower than 100 iso on the auto iso sensitivity can't you?

    Hmm might have to play later with that. I wonder if it'll only go to lower than iso 100 if it maxes out 1/8000 at iso 100.

    D750 users, I might be about to join you. I've been using Fuji for a few months but not feeling as home with that system as I have done with Nikon DSLR's. Prior to the Fuji, I had a D810 and D3. I liked the D810 and my serious photography is mainly landscape stuff or astro, which it was great for but actually the majority of my photos are family stuff which the D810 is a bit overkill for. I think a D750 will be a better all rounder for me.

    Two niggly little things are bugging me and I wonder if anyone can put my mind at ease.

    1. The lack of viewfinder cover built in. I don't want to mess around with the plastic cover. Does anyone make either a new clip on viewfinder with integrated cover or a hot shoe fitting that provides a fold down cover. If not, I might invent one!

    2. The remote jack that I'd use for a remote time is in the side rather than the front which I'm concerned will interfere with a L-bracket. I had this problem with my old D610 but it was just about manageable but not ideal. Is the D750 any different?

    Nope, just won't go lower than 100 ever from what I've seen. If you want to go below ISO100 you need to turn Auto off.

    So I hired the 85mm lens for my holiday in Italy for a friends wedding - from lensesforhire.co.uk who are superb - and it was fantastic. I now understand why it is a go to portrait lens and reminded me of using the 50mm on my old D7000. I'll be saving for one of these I think.

    I also got to grips with the Sigma 35mm Art and it is amazing.

    A few photos - not of people as it isn't my place to post their wedding photos on a forum lol

    Using the 85 to try and capture the huge rainstorm we had in the final hour before the wedding.

    Thanks Kris, I don't normally like kiss shots but this is definitely one of my faves from the wedding. A bit of decent light can make any town look decent, even Chatham :eek:

    No experience of either. But I’d go for the Siggy Art.

    I've not tried the Nikon but it would be some lens if it can top the Sigma 35mm. I'm in the process of switching back to Nikon and the Sigma 35mm was the very first lens on the list. It's also the only one that was an absolute must. All the other stuff, I felt there were two or three options that I could happily opt for. Funnily enough I don't even need a 35mm, it sits awkwardly with the other lenses I want, has no specific purpose and yet sits right at the top of the list! So, hope that conveys my sheer enthusiasm for the lens. It's by some margin my favourite lens that I've ever used, and there have been some good ones!

    Being a little more objective about it, downsides to the Sigma are higher price (I assume?), you probably want to get a USB dock to get the best out of it and lastly it's quite a big lens and certainly quite heavy. I assume a lot heavier than the Nikon 1.8 but then it is a 1.4 and feels every bit like a 'pro' lens.

    I like the look of the Nikon, if I'd never tried the Sigma, it would be right up my street but the Sigma has a little magic.

    Tamron 35 1.8 vc. It’s between both your mentioned lenses in terms of sharpness and has vc and offers 1:2 macro!

    I had the Nikon 35 1.8 for a short while last year before changing to the 1.4 and it's a great lens. Small, sharp and doesn't weigh too much.

    If my Fuji kit ever sells, I'm tempted to try the Sigma, although I believe they're a bit hit and miss quality wise and I've read reports that focussing can go off on them after a while - not sure how much truth there is in either of those comments mind.

    I can't afford the dock and we leave on Saturday so I am cutting things fine! Looking for a lens just to chuck on and hopefully not have to worry about too much fine tuning!!

    Realising you only have a 70-200 to take with you a few days before leaving is bad planning lol
