One of those rare occasions when I'm really happy that this lens turned out that weird bokeh as it sometimes does

Personally, I've never seen anything at a wedding that I needed 400mm for. Nor my 300mm for that matter, but I understand you wanting to stay out of the way. I would take which ever one was lighter.

It's a beach wedding.... large grass area with a gazebo thingie. That's why I'm bringing most everything I own. I've never been involved in weddings at all.

I'm not getting paid but I really want to get a few shots the photographer misses. I'm sure there are lots of those. He'll document the actual wedding. I'll concentrate on the guests.. or that is my plan.

what actually happens is anybody's guess. It might be a total bust.

Thanks Paul, it's only about 20 mins from my house to the common and as this was the first weekend I've been able to get over there I've made it 3 times now in increasingly better light.
This afternoon.....
