The Best Lens For A Wedding Photographer

Best Lens

So I’ve finally purchased the Canon 24-70mm f/2.8 L lens for use on my full frame Canon 5DMKII. I’m really going to try and make sure that is the last lens I buy this year (with the possible exception of the Canon 50mm f/1.4 as an upgrade.) Why is this the best lens for a wedding photographer? Well there is no ‘best lens’ per se, however there is an obvious gap in my lens lineup and I KNOW with all my heart that this lens will get a lot of use when it comes to the Wedding formals.

Luckily I managed to have a quick play with one a few days ago in the Bristol flickr meetup. One of the members very kindly lent me theirs and whilst I didn’t get the opportunity to fully put it through its paces due to the low light I can see why people like it so much.

It’s the optimum wideness for group shots, but also very reasonable for zooming in all the way for a few portraits. In the past this has meant having to swap lenses as I only owned the Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 L II and the 80-200mm f/2.8 L lens. This will really save me a significant amount of time and more importantly mean that I won’t miss the moment.

Whilst I’ve yet to review my copy I got it at an excellent price on eBay of £724 inc P&P. The reviews I have read from both friends and other forums online have been glowing in their praise.

Well hopefully I’ll get a good copy and a review will follow.
