B will be my choice.

One thing, if you do a lot more wedding and portraits, you will probably need 2 more lenses:
50/1.8 and 85/1.8.
If your livelihood depends on weddings and portraits, forget the above 2 and get the following:
50/1.4 and 85/1.4.

Also, when you have enough money, you may want to consider dumping the 55-200VR and getting the 70-200/2.8.

These are considering that you stay within DX format.

i personally like this 11-16, 16-85, and 70-300 more... but it's very personal...

opinion is like a**hole... everyone got one... ;p
