this lens, is it suitable for indoor photography? wedding held indoor?

I would not use it at a wedding, but at f5.6 and 1/30 @800ISO it is a good stage lens, thats IF the stage is light up bright. Here are 2 examples of the 250 indoors:

Outdoors, I am going to be honest with you, it is a great sports lens. I do not shoot 2.8 at games, cause I want to get the most depth of field. I am usually at f5.6 anyway. Around 800-1600 at 1/800-1/1000th Indoors is a different story.

i think maybe i'll go for 85mm f1.8. since the price is not that much different. thanks though for the indoor pictures. and the JB picture? wow. :oops:

I'd go 100mm f2.0. I had 85 and 50 at the same time and they seem too close together in focal length. I'd spread it out a little. 50 and 100 is nice progression.
