Re: Lens Collection for Portraits/Weddings for D700

One vote for the 24-70 + 70-200.

I'd avoid using primes. They're not flexible enough for a wedding (except for some pre-planned shots). These two lenses will minimize the number of lenses you have to use. Those lenses are nice and sharp so they'll do as well as a prime and you won't have to change frequently. The 24mm end is wide enough for all the group shots I've come across, so the 24-70 is probably the only lens you'll use at the reception. The 70-200 gets you (and the mirror noise) away from the couple during the ceremony.
