Anyone using the 35-70 f/2.8 for weddings?
5 months ago

Does anyone use the Nikkor AF 35-70 f/2.8 for weddings? And if you do, do you feel 35mm is not wide enough?

I'm working with a partner who's been dragging around fat zooms while I'm going around leisurely with a 50mm on the camera and a 105mm in the pocket

I think it's bit unfair that I place all the burden on her. And so, I reluctantly - being a prime-guy - bought a 70-200 f/2.8 zoom, and I wanna supplement it with a midrange zoom. However, I don't wanna invest too much into this (apart from weddings I have no other use for it), and the Nikkor seems to offer more than acceptable image quality. There are couple of 3rd party options for around the same money, but from the little I've used them (mostly a Tokina AF 28-70mm) they seem to be a click below. I'm not sure the difference between 35mm and 28mm is worth it.

Any opinions on the matter?
