Has anyone used the 24-70ii for wedding work?

That dessert tray is insane!

Very nice family with the best deserts! We had a great time during this New Year's eve wedding.

I didn't even break out the 70-200 II for this wedding as it was the wrong range for the venue (tight and crowded space). IMO, you need both to cover events, but if I could only have one lens for weddings, I would start with the 24-70 II on full frame.


Fujifilm X-T3, 16mm f/1.4, 23mm f/1.4, 35mm f/1.4, 56mm f/1.2, 80mm f/2.8 OIS Macro, 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 OIS, 1.4x TC, Flashpoint R2 Strobes/Flashes

The pictures are nice, but I'm not 100% sure. There is something about the 70-200 2.8 that I think is smoother for wedding photography over the 24-70 ii

As someone else said, you can (and I have done it a lot) shoot a whole wedding with just the 24-70 + 70-200/2.8IS and a flash. If I could only have one of those, it would be the 24-70 (or 24-105 in my current case). The 70-200 gets better looking images, but weddings often involve tight spaces and big groups

I say stick to outdoor weddings and use the 200 F2 only.

Just FYI, whenever I have a desire to see specific pictures like this, I go on Flickr, look for the lens group, and search for "wedding" tags.
