    But 24-85 is shorter than 24-120. Was hoping there is a 7x+ zoom lens like 24-180. There is a bit gap from 24-120 to 28-300. So i am basically stuck with 24-120/f4 as my only choice. But some ppl said it's not very good lens at the other thread about this lens. Guess i will just make do.

    Side note, if you filter the nikon lens webpage to FX, the 12-120/3.5-5.6 is not there. It appears under the DX listing. Is it a DX lens? Or they made a mistake? The full name of the lens doesn't have "DX" in it so i guess it is an FX lens. The 24-120/4 isn't listed at all, even with all the filters turned off.

    This site? http://www.nikonusa.com/en/Nikon-Pro...ses/index.page

    It's listed right there under FX:



    The 3.5-5.6 shouldn't appear at all, it was reaplced by the f4.

    If there is a 24-180 or 24-200, it will definitely not be a F4 fixed aperture lens...

    About a month from now. Am currently learning/practising. Had a company event last night at a boat quay bar. Was very dark inside so shot everything with flash and the pics turned out alright. So I feel more confident working with flash now.

    For a wedding/dinner/indoor shoot, the most important equipment to me is a powerful and reliable flash gun, plenty of batteries or better still, a power pack. Memory cards and backup cards. Use one main lens to keep things simple. If you have a 2nd body, maybe a fixed 24mm/28mm equiv would be useful.

    A Wedding is very different from a company event. So be prepared.

    Since its ur first attempt, take it easy and simple. One len one flash one cam .. dun be fanciful .. its not about the technical aspect of equipment, rather its about capturing the important moment properly .. u might be tired out halfway in the wedding if u lug along too many cam and len .. end up u will be to tired to shoot.

    (Fyi, wedding usually happen in crampy hdb room with lots of ppl and NO aircon .. smoke somemore if parent light joss stick .. its totally differeny from company event. Gate crushing usually will sweat u out as u will be crush by the bros when u squeeze by the gate to shoot. Well jusy remeber, its a sweaty and tired event so make urself comfortable .. loose pant and cooling shirt is best)

    Dun stress urself about the creative or artistic photo u need to produce, its not the right time for u at the moment.

    Bro, weddings are their once-in-a-lifetime. Good luck to you and try to be alert and focused at all times.
    I will suggest you not to only think about the lens, but also bear in mind that a backup body is as important.
    As a precaution in any bad cases..
