So I've been working with a Nikon D3 and a D7100 for a while now and I've decided to sell both to upgrade to one single body. (Just not seeing the need for 2 bodies anymore) I'm torn between the D750 or the older D810. Any thoughts or advice on what I should look into? I mostly shoot weddings, portraits, and occasionally some sports. 

 

Fairly certain I want to stay FX, but figured I'd see what the general consensus is here between those 2 bodies. Or if you have another contender for me! Thanks~

Have you thought about renting and trying out the different cameras?

Which of your current cameras do you prefer ergonomically? The D750 is based on the D7x00 series and the D810 is based on the single-digits, but without the integrated grip. Performance-wise they are quite similar.

Personally I think I'd want two bodies if I were shooting weddings just in case one had issues.  However, I think I'd opt for the D810 if I were shooting weddings.  While I know folks who have used both, neither is really a good selection for shooting sports.  As Fletch recommended, renting is probably your best choice to decide which works better for you and what you want to do.

i would got the rent route since can try out camera you want. then find the one fits your needs. also with out budget to go on. its hard to lead you in right way. also  what type of photography do you like to shoot.

Hi,

 

Speaking from my experience as a portrait photographer which owned both cameras, I personally prefer the D810 (Buy used). That being said, both are great and you can't go wrong with either.
