17-40 f4 for wedding portraits on 1.3 crop
hello, i have a question and i understand the answer might be subjective.
mid august i will be attending my aunt's wedding. i am not the photographer but i would like to fire off some shots all the same.
i have just bought a 1d mk ii so money's a bit tight. i want the 35 or 24 1.4 but cannot get the money together before the wedding, so i was considering the 17-40.
my question is, is this lens going to be too slow? the wedding will be at sunset and the area is a tad shaded by trees. i don't know how the noise is on the 1d ii yet but i know that on my 350d i am not fond of shooting at iso 1600. 800 is fine, and 1600 can be a nice B&W shot but i would like a few color shots.
currently i have a 50 1.8 and a 100 2.8 macro (i had to sell a 70-200 2.8 for tuition money.. i really regret it) i'm just looking for opinions, i know it is hard for anyone to offer an answer without seeing the place i'm going to be shooting at.
