I will be doing some team photo's (Football, soccer) and I was wondering if the 24-70L would be wide enough on a crop body without having to get to far back, or should I get the 17-55?

While shooting group shot with wide angle lens, people at the edge will be distorted so don't go too wide. I made that mistake shooting at 17mm with 40D w/ 17-55mm.

Anyone out there shooting team pics with either lens on a crop that could chime in?

24 isn't going to be wide enough, imo. Keep people far away from the edges the best you can. In other words, go wider and crop later.

the 24 isn't very wide. No problems though. Just walk backwards.

24-70 will not be wide enough. On ff, it is okay, though.

Borrowed my friends 24-70 and its not wide enough on a crop sensor... plus it doesn't have IS and lighting was poor and some shots were blurred because of a camera shake. 17-55 IS is the answer, that's what I am getting....
