    Oh John...you are too funny. Nikon makes everything...they just market it like Vivitar used to contract. Those fine L Canon lenses are really made by Nikon/Leica/Zeiss/Panagor/Pentax/Mitsubishi/Sony/Samsung/Panasonic/Ford/GMC. All the money made in the world ends up in the hands of the CE/F/I- O of one mega corporation. The marketing is just all hype so we continue to buy the mass produced inferior but superbly advertised/hyped/marketed goods.

    Hi there

    Hope I'm not too late to share.

    I'm not a wedding photog but from my recent wedding for brother in law I found F5 + 28-70f2.8 and 105mm f2.8
    is sufficient to cover everything.

    For flash I used Metz 70 MZ5.

    I have 17-35 as backup for group but never use it.

    Last time I shot a night-time wedding party I tried to use my Contax 167MT with Zeiss 28-85 zoom, figuring that that would cover everything. Trouble was, it was too dark to focus properly. OK, if I weren't autofocus-phobic maybe I'd own an autofocus camera, but I don't. In retrospect, next time I'll use one of my Leica M's so at least I can focus in dim light. Yes, I've got lots of Nikons, and maybe I'd have been better off with my FE2 and 35mm f/2. But I do think a rangefinder would be better in marginal light.

    I used to shoot weddings with N90s and F5 cameras. I had various combinations of two bodies with one wearing the 35-70mm f2.8 zoom and the other the 85mm f1.4. I had a few other lenses in my bag like the 180mm f2.8 but they were seldom used.

    You need to have at least two bodies so I see nothing wrong with having two primary lenses.
