For that I'm thinking of tamron 24-70 as it has VC(IS on canon).

If you could only use one lens for candids at an outdoor reception what would it be? Also would you differ between 7d and 5dm2 in making a choice

if you mean candid as in unaware photos, 70-200L 2.8 all day long, indoors or out. it's a little long on a crop body sometimes though.

if you mean, candid as in impomptu guest groups and just some sniping, then outdoors the 24-105L is hard to beat as a single all-arounder that works good on both crop and full frame.
and an f/4 works lens works just fine for that.

If it's one lens for candids, then the 70-200 f2.8 MKII for sure. The ability to stand back and isolate subjects quickly by zooming in or out with beautiful bokeh, it's perfect for me. People sometimes don't act "natural" when they are aware there's a lens pointing at them.

I shoot almost all day with a 35L on one 5D MarkIII, and an 85 f1.8 on the other MarkIII. Sometimes I will use the 70-200 for the ceremony, and I usually put on the 17-40 for the reception. If I had to pick one lens, it would definitely be the 35. It allows me to bring in some background information for more environmental candids, capture interactions between people, but it's still just long enough to get a pretty good head shot. I have no problem mingling with guests and the wedding party-if I hang out long enough, people forget I'm there.
