Thought it would be interesting to get views of what people like to use for their best wedding shots and why ?

Mine is the Canon EF 50mm 1.2L , its beautifully engineered , feels great and has a look of quality not quantity about it , the bokeh it produces is superb and I find it takes by far the most natural shots of all my lenses , the only down side is working with tiny depths of field which is challenging but great fun ..

Had a quick look at your pf and none of the wedding shots seems to be with that lens? There are a couple of portraits, but they seem a bit far away/too small to really get the effect.

Canon 50mm f1.4 for me although crap at 1.4 superb at 2.8 I find this helps me produce the more controlled pleasing set up shots but I have to say I couldn't do a wedding without the canon 70-200 f2.8 the candid shots I get when in stealth mode are the ones the couple enjoy most when viewing.

me me me.... lol.... my Nikon 17-55 f2.8 is on my camera more than any other lens i have.... with my 70-200 f2.8 not far behind, but the 17-55 is a GREAT lens with the right amount of zoom to be versatile in most situations, and at f2.8 i still find it very sharp. Smile

Nikkor 24-70 2.8 on D700
Nikkor 80- 200 2.8 0n D3
Pretty much covers the day maybe 16mm fisheye for some good locations and stair wells odd bit of macro for rings ect. but on subject my fave is the 80-200 on the D3 the results are just awsome,your stepped back at bit and leave enough to crop into,apart from it being a pin sharp lens.

Nikkor 27-70 f2.8 on FX
Nikkor 17-55 f2.8 on DX

The 14-24 f2.8 is stellar too, given the right situations...
