Re: What lenses for wedding shooting

The lens line up looks good to me.

I would suggest second body with the 70-200 attached to it, to minimize missing shots when changing lenses.

Also use eneloop batteries for the SB900 as one of the previous posters suggested.

Please post some pics afterwards.

I was asked to make photos on an wedding.

I am not a pro, but want to rent a D700 with lenses and appreciate your comments on my planned equipment (maybe I forgot something essential):

  • D700

  • 24-70mm f2.8

  • 70-200mm f2.8

  • 60mm micro

  • SB-900 with diffusor

The majority of the photos will be made indoors with dimmer light, so I plan to use fast lenses.
With the micro I want to make some closeups from rings, cards etc.

I plan to rent it for two days, so that on the first day I can practice at the location and test with the light conditions.
BTW my current camera is a Sony DSC-828

thanks for your comments,
