Post 24-105 F/4L

Is the 24-105 a better lens for weddings than the 24-70. Does the IS offset the extra F stop gained with the 24-70??? Thanks for your replies and help.

based on your signature I think you could stick any of your lenses on your 5D and get top of the line images... I think you need to be more concerned with technique at this point in your endeavours

Back on topic... I wouldn't buy an F4 lens for wedding, I want all the light I can get. IS doesn't help if your subjects are moving, and even when people are standing apparently still they're still really moving.

Nope, I'd love to buy kawter2's nice 24-70/2.8 L (please)

And if you can part with your 85/1.2 for almost nothing, I'm game.

Well, I'll throw my 2 cents in. In my experience with weddings, most of the time I use a flash bracket and I do that for outdoor weddings, to fill in the shadows or indoors when the light is low. The times I use a prime for natural light shots, 2.8 usually isn't fast enough, so, I found a F4 lens more than adequate. I just recently bought the lens in question and haven't had a chance to shoot a wedding with it, but I have to say that having also owned a 24-70, I really like the 24-105 much better. The reasons being are that it is smaller, lighter and longer. I can walk around town and shoot street shots at 24 mm and it isn't extended all the way out, like the other one and if I go without the hood, it doesn't look all that intimidating. It does hunt in low light/contrast situations, but with a flash or STE2 and infared assist it's no problem. when the light gets down to where you are shooting at 1/8 sec. or something like that you can get a sharp image with the IS, but at a 1/16 sec. and F2.8, I doubt you could. I really don't think there is a better one lens solution for weddings, than this lens, with a flash.

Wow you almost own every canon lens , any reason why you have the 70-200 f/4, 2.8, 2.8 IS?

And the 1200mm? I highly doubt you have that, Do you have any pics taken with it?

I agree just whip any of those bad boys on and you'll be fine.

I really have to wonder why people listing their gear irks some people (envy maybe). I often look at the gear list to determine what a pic was probably taken with. Also if I notice someone has a particular lens I mignt ask their opinion on it if I was thinking of buying it.
Read the quote in my sig.

Yah that is it... haha, Sorry I have enough gear, and if I don't have the right piece for the job, the client pays a rental fee..

I just prefer photography to be more about the art and less about the gear.

I would agree with Tim on the f4.0, even with IS. I find myself trying desperately to get the natural light shot and end up forgetting about the movement of the subject. And boy, do they ever move. You don't notice it much until you try to stop it. Perhaps an IS for the subjects would work.
