    As others have said, it's a bit hard to just suggest a single lens for any given task, especially when they are also very broad subjects. For an indoor portrait... what type is it? A tight headshot, environmental portrait, under studio conditions, or ambient, amonst many other factors.

    I'd also really hate to have to shoot a wedding on one lens, and there are also very few times that I haven't wished that I had brought another lens with me, in addition to the half a dozen or so that I will have brought. Weddings are about as varied a subject matter as you can come up with, and during the course of the day you could, if you wanted to, make use of every focal length from fisheye up through to super telephoto.

    From my own experience the 70-200mm f/2.8 VR has been the best so far for indoor portraits. VR is extremely important indoors.

    Is there truly anything as a "best lens"?

    Most expensive and most attractive (to equipment wankers) lens perhaps.... I've used variants of a kit lens, superzooms, primes, and each lens serves a different purpose to me. Sometimes, it depends on my mood and what I feel like creating at the time. "Best lens".... nah, keep the term for someone else. *evil grin*
