Phil,

I couldn't help but notice on your chart that you butted up against
55mm a huge number of times. I can't help but wonder how many of
those 55mm shots would have been longer if you had a 24-70mm range to
work with?

That's quite true, Scott, and is why I am going to buy a 24-70 in the future. However, please read my reply to Joseph on the reason for the large number of 55 shots. Essentially, it's due to my laziness.

Even when I get the 24-70, I can almost guarantee the 17-55 will still be my primary lens at weddings and similar events, at least on DX.

Phil
