Hi all, Looking on purchasing newer gear and I had the Canon 17-40 as a want...thinking I would want more than the Canon 24-70. Is anyone using this lens, and if so, how many times during a wedding?

I use a 16-35 all day. So much so I have both a Canon one and a Sony one.

If you have a crop, the 17-40 is more appropriate to get a wider view. for FF, most love the 24-70.

As to how many times? that depends on your style, and how much room you have to work with.

For weddings I use my 17-40 to mostly get wide shots of the church/venue and keep it close if there's a really big group shot I need to do in limited space. I use my 24-70 the majority of the time though.

I use it on a 7D MKII for wedding works great. I use it for family formals too.
