Re: Tamron 28-75 f2.8 XR or Nikon 85mm f1.8D?

personally, since a pro will be there (most likely using the nikon 17-55dx and 70-200vr - or gasp, even canon), i would not bother buying any new lenses and just use your 50/1.8. great low light performer, not intrusive, you will be able to enjoy the party more, and while the pro will most likely get the formal shots better, I bet you will provide more of the personally and memorable shots.

however, if you just really want more glass and this is the excuse for it, the tamron will be a good addition.
