So just something I wanted to put out there to see what other people were currently set-up with..
for the longest time I have been shooting my canon 24-70 2.8L at weddings (second shooter, 8-14 weddings a year). Great versatile lens.. but recently, in my "i need new equipment" phase i purchased a sigma 50 1.4 on amazon... holy crap....what a lens. Shortly after (this morning) i ordered the sigma 35 1.4 art. That put my arsenal at the 35mm 1.4, 50mm 1.4, 100mm 2.8L macro, and 24-70mm 2.8.
After purchasing a nice tripod tonight for some landscapes I gave the 85mm a serious thought... I considered getting away from the zoom lens completely and going all prime... then I quickly realized that as great of portraits as the 100mm macro turns out..it really is a macro lens...and i rarely shoot anything macro....especially something that I would keep and print... so I thought...why the heck not sell the 100mm macro and buy the 85mm instead? Keep the 24-70 for an off-the wall occasion where I can only have my camera and 1 lens... *(Like travel somewhere, it still turns out a hell of an image..)
so yea... I guess I'm not exactly all prime... but my wedding gear will consist of all prime lenses (only downside is one body... gr...), probably mainly the 35/85 combo.. I'm excited... bot the 35 and 85 come in the mail saturday.. hopefully right before my 2 p.m. wedding
