70-200 2.8 IS is the longest for weddings. Never needed the 400mm reach, yet---

There's a pic floating of Cosworth using a 300 2.8 IS during wedding coverage. I'd certainly use that in a two person shoot sort of situation. The candids are awesome!

I used to use a 70-200, now I just use one of the Google Streetview cars. Drive around the wedding a few times and I'm done. Did annoy a priest once when I backed over the organist trying to get a close up of the cake.

Nice. Does that thing have IS to correct for motor shake? Who needs a battery grip when you have an alternator? :D

70-200 f2.8 IS... It's rarely on the camera though.

I'm thinking about taking a 300 f4 for ****s and giggles. Might provide some nice candids.
