    Are u using FX or DX?
    On FX, the 14-24mm might be abit too wide as a one zoom staple lens.
    On FX the 24-70mm is a great option, the 24mm covers a table shot, while the 70mm gives a little isolation.

    ( one of the fav for wedding photog was the 17-55mm DX lens on a DX sensor )

    Different folks different strokes, u will find folks who swear by either above mentioned.

    17-35. 14-24 is too wide for weddings, even on DX. But of course that depends on how you use your lenses

    AFS17-35 will be more appropriate, another alternative is the AFS24-70

    Not to mention too heavy and intimidating with that protruding large round front element...

    Old same advice:

    14-24mm: have too much money, obsessed about sharpness and distortion
    17-35mm: cheaper, lighter, more practical choice, can do filters

    Side note: 24-70: Best for wedding(FF)

    the 14-24 is really .

    probably you should try using one before deciding.

    extremely sharp. no issues shooting at f/2.8 during a ballroom function.

    bad thing is the weight, as well as the huge front element (cannot attach filter).
