Right guys, im doing a few weddings this year... at the moment im only using the following lenses!

50mm 1.8, 10-22mm UWA and 15-85mm


What would be your recommendations for a good lens line up for my 7D?

Any input would be greatly appreciated!!!

Churches are dark. So fast lenses.

Sigma 30 comes to mind.

i keep getting badgered to swap out my canon 15-85mm with the 17-55mm, is it worth doing? or should i stick with this lens?

Iv been looking hard at the sigma, and it seems like an awesome buy for the money

Yes, for lower light, larger apertures and IS are almost always worth it. I don't know that the focus accuracy of a sigma 30 would be reliable enough for this kind of work, but some people really like
theirs, so I may be in the minority with that opinion.

Is it worth the extra $300 though? Any other recommendations?
