    100mm for a wedding shoot? are you shooting as the main photog or with the paparazzo crowd? a main photog normally has free access so why 100mm? unless for macro close-ups of bouquet, rings etc...

    10-22mm lens gives a different perspective when you shoot weddings. As you are likely to have close access during weddings, distance is not a problem.

    You guys should try it and decide if it works for you.

    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..

    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.

    For a low budget wedding photographer wannabe like me... I'm using the Tammy 17-50 on a 40D for most of the shots.

    A ZF-AF version of the lens would be nice..

    Personal choice:

    - these 2 is always on the camera when we set out.
    17-55mm f2.8
    18-200mm VR

    - Optional use when the environment requires it
    12-24mm f4
    70-200mm f2.8
    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 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

    you have to keep trying out what your suitable focal lengths are. everyone sees things differently.
