Should I rent a 24-70L for a boudoir shoot?

I am doing a boudoir shoot in a hotel room for 5 girls. I wanted to rent a lens for this (I have the 50mm 1.4 and a 80-200) and was thinking the 24-70. It has a wider aperture which I think I will really need since I will be using mostly natural light. What do you think? Or have any other recommendations that would suite me better?

Natural light in a hotel room? Dude, you're gonna be upset with your results. Depending on what time of day you'll be shooting, you'll either be dealing with the sunlight by throwing open the curtains and hoping the sun in on the right side of your window, or using the lights in the hotel which are likely crappy (end table light, desk lamp, maybe some overhead tungsten) - you should REALLY consider what light you're gonna bring.

Either lens will work for ya, the 24-70 isn't a bad idea for its range. But lighting will be more important.

Well I have already checked out the room and it has two windows and I made sure there are no walls or anything from any other building obstructing the light. I will be bringing my 5in1 reflector, my external flash (even though it will be on camera) and one hollywood light.

Oh and it won't be 5 girls at once :)

You have limited space, so the 80-200 is probably not going to be very useful. You could use the 50, and I would also suggest thinking about doing some very low key type photos, and your models would probably like it also.

The 24-70 would be a good choice. I would normally suggest the 17-55, but generally I don't think portaits between 17 and 24 are very flatering. -However with the low light the IS on the 17-55 might be appreciated.

Have you considered a prime lens? 24L? 35L? 50L?or 85L? Although the crop factor may be a bit to long with the 50L or 85L... Nonetheless, you can get creative with your captures... Food for thought...

Have you thought about a 17-55 2.8 IS?

You may want to rent an extra flash or two as well.
