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.

didnt know they did this? thought it was a 3.5 - 5.6?

edit: stupid me, read it as 18-200.... oooops

70-200 F2.8 IS is my fave
17-40 probably my second fave, to create those scene setting shots - B&G small in the scene, the landscape around them taking over... more of a "story lens" than a portrait lens

my second 24-105 has just broken - fantastic range and everything, but 100% failure rate in my experience. it is my most used wedding lens purely because of its versatility.

when my Holga gets covered in fungus I just apply weed killer; works like a charm and doesn't affect the operation of the lens at all; if the fungus takes over during a wedding and I have forgotten to pack the weed killer I reach for my 24-70 f/2.8.

Here's a strange one to throw into the mix, my Tamron 90mm SP Di Macro, I know you all think I've gone slightly do-dally! But trust me it makes a superb portrait lens when for whatever reason you can't get close......Other than this I suppose it has to be the Canon 17-55 2.8, which only ever seems to come out the bag when I do weddings.....

Do you get married often then ?

In the UK the "happy couple" pay for nothing. That expense falls to the father of the bride.

I've had 3, only one more to get shot of now and she don't seem in any rush......I'll never be a rich man me!! Sad

They do say though that you're more virile if you have daughters, but I know I've always been a stud (COFF!) Tongue

I think your Canon 17-55 might actually be a Nikon one if you check the poster's camera. Wink
