Wedding Shoot Lenses
Sep 28, 2009

I presently have:

Canon 50D
Speedlite 430 ex with flash diffuser
18 - 55 IS kit lens
85 1.8
50 1.8
and 70 - 300 IS

Do I spend the money on the 17 - 55 2.8 or would I be able to "get by with" what I currently own? I know eventually I want this lens but I would rather try to pay cash then put it on my Amazon card...besides, the price has risen from $960 to over $1000. I have done three weddings with another one in October for a family member. I've been getting paid more with each event. This is the first wedding I'm doing without any connection with the couple. They essentially hired me from word of mouth and looking at my on-line album.

Thoughts would be appreciated...thanks.
