if you have the 17-55mm f2.8, why you still need 28-80mm 3.5~5.6??

anyway, the fundamentals of shooting weddings as follow:

#1, proficiency of basic photography.
#2, understanding the rituals of wedding event.
#3, using the right equipments.

some say also need the ability to communicate with everyone, I would say this is depend on the personality of the photographer.

hope you get the priority right.

As the guys have said, stick to the 17-55...

The SD-80dx is Dttl capable and would still be a good match for the D100.

Which mode are you comfortable with for portraits? Use that mode.
