I am renting lens for the wedding i have next month and i have chosen two already
Canon 50mm 1.2
Canon 85mm 1.2
I need your help with a third lens....
I need it to be able to shoot in low light, and best fir fireworks
was thinking about Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM
oh i am shooting on a Canon 50D
For the wedding combos, I've done so many with two 5D II (or one 1Ds II) with 16-35L II, 35L (50L), and 70-200 II.
I'm assuming that you are using FF camera so 50mm "might" be able to cover some wide angle shots, but it's a little risky with some group shots. If I was in your situation, I would choose one UWA to get some interesting shots, a fast prime (50L is a great one) and a 70-200. Some people would recommend you to get the 24-70 (this is also very good one for wedding purpose with flash. Otherwise, the 35L is a good alternative for low light shots without flash).
Edit: I've missed you are shooting the 50D, so you definitely need a UWA to cover the group shots. 50L and 85L on crop bodies are good for some guests shots but not group shots.
Have you thought about getting (renting) another body to shoot instead of getting both 50L and 85L?
