My brother's getting married, and he is willing to buy me any lens I want to shoot his wedding - nice brother :D

I have a 7D + 17-55 2.8 + 35 2.0 + 100 f2
+ xti + 10-20 Wigma

I guess my question is really, should I buy the 70-200mm 2.8 mi and sell the 100 f2?

We wouldn't. That's more than enough gear. Just go out and shoot from now on.

Note this day in history:

This is the first time that any photographer has ever been told they have "enough gear" (by someone other than darling wife or husband). Now, if the OP agrees, I think that will cause the time-space continuum to shatter.

When did the Mayan calendar end--today?

:lol:


1D-III with stuff to stick on it:
70-200L, 28-70L, 24-105L, 300L, 50, 10-17 fish, 2.0x TC
Image editing OK, encouraged, and expected. Thank you for helping me learn!

If you're covering what you need to, you won't have TIME to use all those lenses. Changing lenses at a wedding stops you from shooting and can introduce dust on the CCD/CMOS, so don't do it.

By FAR AND AWAY you need a backup camera body, not more glass. And flash is essential. To be brutally frank, you are not prepared to shoot a wedding at this point. Please defer to someone else and ask if you can assist. Don't screw up a family member's big day learning what works and what doesn't.

If you can find someone who would do an even swap - do it and FAST. Then, run away.

not to be a d*ck, but is your g12 your backup?
for my first wedding, my backup was a film body, so i'm not knocking it, but you're coming off a bit harsh here.
I'm just thinking you must have much more gear than is in your signature is all.

and if you don't swap lenses because you are afraid of dust getting on the sensor, do you also not kneel for a lower perspective because you might scuff your pants? seems like a pretty limiting mindset. people swap lenses all the fricken time.
