So I'm working towards establishing my wedding photography operation here. Currently I've got a 50D and a 24-70 2.8 with a working range of 38-112.
I've done the first wedding, turned out great but what's more important is that I've learned the limitations of my gear.
I need a second body for back up (costs $100 to rent for one day), need a 70-200 for the reach (costs $25 to rent) and need something wide for group and environmental shots as my working 38-112mm range isn't wide enough.
I'm trying to decide between a 5d II (would take care of back up body and give me 24mm wide) or a 70-200 2.8 II (would give me a long 112-320mm reach) as my next piece of equipment. I've got $2.5k to burn and cannot make up my mind.
Let me know what you think or if there are options I've not yet considered.
