Quite interesting - thanks for the link. I can't say that I've ever created "bubbles" that pronounced with any of my lenses. This is about the closest I've come:

Yeah I think they were close that's why they were big. I can see the halos in your candles but they aren't distracting at all. Rings and weddings go together though :P

Yes - they do go together ;).

Realistically though I've never concerned myself with that issue. I was always more interested in getting the shot. If an image was that objectionable, then it simply would not be shown to the b/g. The think is, on a FF body that lens is extremely convenient with it's range of FL's. Large groups are great at 24-35mm, portraits do very nicely at 105mm, and all manner of candids and small groups are done in between.

I don't shoot weddings, so I'll leave the lens comments to the wedding shooters but I'd like to add that you should keep your current body as a spare. Cameras do fail and a wedding is something you can't reshoot another day.

Always bring two bodies and use both. Three if possible

i started my wedding with 2 full frame camera (5D2 &1ds2) and a 450D.
now, i'm using mainly the 2x5D3 and 1ds2+5D2 as backup. i realise that at every one time, i prefer to have 2 bodies with 2 different focal length lenses on each body.

even if the camera don't fail, the memory card can fail too. so i play it safe to write every photo into 2 memory cards as backup hence the 2x5D3 setup.

I use my 24-105 during weddings, but I use my 70-200, 35, and 85 exponentially more. The 24-105 is fantastic for formals and cocktail hour. I had the 24-70 and hated it for it's weight and lack of range.
