For me 50mm F1.4 (maybe 10%) and 100mm F2.8 macro (maybe 2%). 17-55 is 70%, 70-200 2.8 IS 20%. Margin of error is 5% so don't bust me over numbers :p

For outdoor weddings, it's my 24-105 for most of it. For indoor weddings, I still use my 24-105 for the formals w/my B800, but for the rest I use 50 1.4 & 70-200 2.8 a lot.

16-35 and 70-200 IS

When I upgrade my mid zoom to a 24-70 it'll probably replace the 16-35 for most shots unless it would have been at 16mm

The 70-200 IS on my 5D, but the 24-70 would be a close second.

Why were no primes listed? I hear many raves about using 50 f1.4 and 85 f1.8 for weddings plus 35 f1.4L
