Bummer Joey. I had never dropped a lens before either...I'll never forget the sound. :(

Never dropped a lens but I've bumped into many a door frame or the knobby posts on the end-of-aisle church pews. My 70-200 usually gets the worst beating due to its length. Survived every time however. That's not a good sound either.

To be sure that your prime lenses focus accurately I can recommend checking them with a lensalign: http://www.luminous-landscape.com …cessories/lensa​lign.shtml (external link)

I've never shot a wedding where I didn't use my 35L. It's one of my favorite lenses.

I shot my last wedding with just a 35L, a 70-200 2.8L, and one body... turned out fine. It's all in how you use the lens.

For my first wedding I used the 35L & 135L with one body. I didn't really feel the need for any other glass.
