I wonder if one could get away with shooting weddings with those two- 50 and 85 - as first shooter though. I sort of get the impression that the first shooter's go-to lens is the 24-70L.
I don't mean to take away from your c&c space! But your thoughts?
Btw, your first shooter must have been thrilled with your contribution!
Thanks! It's really hard to say. I've done 3 weddings now as a second shooter shooting all primes and I'd say the 50 and the 85 were probably in most heavy rotation, but I also really rely on my 135 when I need reach and obviously there are times you must have a wide angle. FWIW if you can't swing the 35L I am really happy with the 28 1.8. I shot quite a bit of an engagement session today with it. I'll post some of those over on the lens thread after I've edited them.
I'm going to start taking on some weddings this year as a primary and have already realized that I must either rent or acquire a 70-200.
So, the 50 and the 85 most get the might play, but I wouldn't attempt a wedding as a primary without a wide angle and a telephoto. Even if you plan to have your second shooter cover the wide and telephoto, what if they have gear problems, or you lose confidence in them?
