I'm now contemplating selling a kidney and just going the whole hog and getting a Nikon 17-55 (instead of the three lenses listed above) and a Nikon 70-200VR. This combination seems to get the "thumbs up" as a REALLY good two lens solution to weddings. Saves a lot of fumbling around changing lenses and possibly missing shots.

My children love eating beans on toast so the hardship shouldn't really hit them that much. I will grow to love them to!

I already have a couple of reflectors and tripods so we are covered in that respect. On the subject of reflectors, I am surprised how few wedding photographers use them. The ones I've filmed with that do, always get some beautiful shots using them.

I use a 5 sided refelctor and diffusor.. cost me less than a hundred bux AU and its savesd many a photogs ass...

As for tripods, i deliberately went the manfrotto route, as i can use a 503 head on the same sticks (055) then when i get into still shooting mode, i jsut swap the head and mount the 322RC2 in a matter of seconds.. works a treat
