    if i were you, id go back and review the photos of the events that ive done or any other photos for that matter, and see if it is lacking anything.

    look at works done by other photographers dat you look up to, compare it with yours
    then see if it was down to a specific technical requirement or skills.

    my suggestion is to do more events and more studio portrait work first. See the kind of limitaion you have, and if there is a need to, you can rent out equipments to suit your need.

    p/s Your current lens collection already covers quite a bit of range. What do you hope to achieve with new glass?
    give me a pen, and i'll give you my signature

    If I were you, I would spend the money and invest into the pocketwizards system, and a couple of 580EXII, light stands and umbrellas. I will also get rid of the 18-55 and 55-200. And get 17-50/2.8 Tamron and also add a 50/1.8. I may even dump the 28-75 tamron... for many events, 28 on APS-C is not wide enough.

    If you are more confident, and have more budget, dump the 500D and get a 5Dmk2, 24/1.4L, 85/1.2L or 50/1.2L and you can do low light photography too...

    thank u for all who have contribute, between tammy 17-50 and 28-75, i choose 28-75mm becos at that time i thought 18-55 kit lens do a decent job becos i already have flash.. but i hvnt touch 18-55 in a long long time.

    and i already have 50mm f1.8, the 1.4L series perhaps in future? cos its quite expensive >.<
