Right now I have the 14-140, and the olympus 14-35 f/2.0. I'm still deciding on what to else to get before wedding season kicks in. I'm seriously thinking of getting the 35-100, but I hear it is quite a big lens. I guess It might not be too bad on the monopod though. I just balanced the AF100 + 14-35 on my merlin yesterday. It flies pretty well.

What about yourself? I hear 50mm and around the 85mm mark are pretty standard for weddings?

Also, how do you shoot the recessional, primes or zoom?

I hate you Josh. You just pointed me out to a gorgeous piece of glass worth 2k plus.

Right now I use it with canons. For processional, I use a 16-35L. I set it to 5.6 - 6.3 on a 5d then slap it back on the AF.

haha, glad I could help in you adding to your wish list!

The image on the 14-35 is fantastic. It communicates great with the AF100 as well, giving you the readout on the LCD, which from what I understand you can't do with the Canon glass as of now (waiting on the biger). Others have said I owe it to myself to get the 35-100 as well. It seems like a sweet focal range, not to mention FAST zooms. I'm looking at them as variable primes at f/2.0 through out the zoom range.

So what are you usually shooting the processionals at 35mm? I'm so used to zooming out slowly to keep the subjects framed when I used my XHA1. I'm trying to figure out how to best shoot it now with the af100. I will have to come at things in a different mind set now.

mostly at the wider end. to show off the entourage couture.

is the 14-35 EXACTLY like a 14-35 on a full frame?

No the 2X crop factor makes it like a 28-70mm on a full frame.
