well since you do weddings and engagements, the 35mm might not be so conveinient.

The 28-70mm is a great lens, works great for weddings and events.

I can do an all day wedding and never take it off my D600.

It has the 35mm range  which shows no distortion at this focal length

If you get a used one make sure it is used little or has an extended warranty.

The heavy lens puts a strain on the AF motor.

I had to send mine in for repair when the motor went.

It was still under warranty, almost 5 years, Melville did the repair for free and did a great job.
