Hi Guys and Gals,
Nice easy question,
What lens are you all using to do standard line up shots inside the church, say a basic gathering of 10 people in a line, the B&G + Parents, and bridesmaids etc etc?
Currently I'm using a Sigma 10-20 DC HSM F4-5.6 on a 40D for a lot of shots like this, such as inside the church, or even inside the brides home for tight areas such as bedrooms for dress shots etc. But I'm really unhappy with the results, and I don't think it's due to having a bad copy of the lens. The person in the middle of the group shot is always more or less in focus, never what you'd call pin sharp, but as for the people outside that centre zone, especially as you approach the edges, Whoa !!, even at f11, or upwards, anyone outside the "middle", are really way outta focus, so much that they almost turn into a flesh coloured blob.
Now okay, Iit may well be a fault, but regardless of that what lens are you using for this part of the day as I've also got a 17-55, but on a cropped body it's not always wide enough for the group shots
Thanks in advance
