    Hypothetically, assuming refined sensor density and incredible ISO performance, a 24mm F2 on Full Frame. All pictures can be cropped from that. But no one would want to do that. Perspective control will be a nightmare.

    I don't think it would be smart to use only 1 lens to cover an AD wedding, especially of the couple are paying clients.

    But if you insist on doing so, I'd go for versatility of a zoom lens, such as the various 18-200mm, Nikon's 18-300mm or Canon's 24-105mm / Nikon's 24-120mm.

    You can use only one lens 85mm f1.4 if you are not the official AD wedding photographer

    Use a 17-35 / 16-40 f2.8 / f4 type lens, and in a lens in the 50 or 85 1.4 range, and get out the 70-200 f2.8 area at least.

    Weddings are not cheap for a reason......
    LOL, ya quite true. But one lens for all does not necessarily mean bringing just ONE lens lah. The photographer could hv brought two 85mm and two bodies, right? Just that he prefers to carry only one lens on one body...hypothetically

    ya, agree.
    it is just hypothetical. I guess nobody has tried that. Just exploring.

    Understand some folks are doing available light. Wonder if zooms would be able to handle.
    of course, on the other hand, state of the art bodies might be able to compensate with their high iso

    sure you can,
    just simply tell the wedding couple, I don't do this, I don't do that, I don't shoot this this this and this, I will only shoot what I think is suitable for me to shoot.

    so no surprise for the wedding couple on their wedding day and you will not get sued after their wedding.

    most likely the photographer will never get hired in the first place

    also. if you need one lens to shoot everything, you need to travel deep into Mordor, and search within the Fires of Mount Doom.

    Stand like super far? Idk seriously. I've not done wedding photography and I guess that question is best posed to rhino123,which was what I did? That said I've not seen anyone using a 70-200 for such group shots.

    But then he can do it but standing so far, people will cut in and it's frustrating!

    I ever stand on the stage to shoot table group photos, not becos I'm using a 70-200 lens, it is becos the restaurant is so cramp, and total 70++ tables, there is no room between VIP tables and the stage, so I have to stand on stage to shoot table group photos. and some have to shoot across from the next table.
