I still use an external gallery package.  Currently using Zenphoto.  I
am working on putting up a family blog and gallery and have chosen to
stick with Zenphoto for my gallery.  The one nice thing that Zenphoto
offers that WordPress doesn't is being able to upload the images via
ftp/scp/etc... and have the automatically loaded into the gallery.
This is the big thing for me because I don't like tying up a browser
that will end up consuming a lot of memory when trying to upload
several hundred photos at a time.

Gallery2 is way too bloated and slow in my opinion.  There are some
Zenphoto WordPress plugins, so you may be able to tie those 2
together.  Although I haven't looked into using them.
