I use the following lens during wedding
24-70 and 35f1.4!
im using these 03 lenses for wedding shots :-
No favourites. Use whatever is required to get the job done. Every wedding requires a different lens utility depending on the time, place and accessibility..
guys, mine different.
17-85mm IS + 100mm F/2.0 USM with 2 body, no time to change lens ..
but 17-85mm IS normally use 80% in the wedding assignment; while 100mm f/2.0 USM only 20%.. hehe..
24-70mm f/2.8 on main body
70-200mm f/2.8 on another body
17-40mm f/4 in bag (mount on main body for group shots)
Of course with 2 bodies.

According to TS, "favourite" and most used lens would mean just one lens.
In this case, it would be my Carl Zeiss 16-80mm (on APS-C sensor), as it probably covers 70+% of the shots that I take.
Used to be 17-40 on a 10D body, but now 24-105 on a 5D body.
- these 2 is always on the camera when we set out.
- Optional use when the environment requires it
50mm f1.8 (though f1.4 more preferable, include a +3 macro close-up filter for special shots)
Changing of lens sometimes makes the moment slipped away. Hence the usage of 2 camera bodies.
my previous set up, 17-40 f4... for all event and wedding shot...
Leica M4P/ M2 / Summarit 35mm f2.5 / Summicron C40mm f2 / Kobalux 21mm f2.8
my most favourite lenses are the 85mm and 24mm focal length.
The most difficult lens to use is the 16-35mm range. I'm still mastering and exploring it. yet to see most photographers full exploit wide angles creatively expect William Chua locally
