Re: Need some CC on a few shots - Thank you

My normal kit is similar to yours:

7D with a 40D for backup

70-200 f2.8L IS

17-55 f2.8

Plus, I carry a 10-22 for ultra-wide shots. When shooting events, I'll have the 70-200 on one body and the 17-55 on another, so I can quickly swap views without missing the shot while I change a lens. For important events (like weddings) I also carry a 17-85 and a 55-250 as backups - or sometimes 20mm, 50mm and 85mm f1.8 primes if the light is very low.

Note, in your case, when you need to shoot in rough conditions, you main lenses should be L lenses and those have environmental protection. The 70-200 L counts, but the 17-55 doesn't (it's a great lens, but not environmentally sealed). You may way to look at the 16-35 L and either the 24-105 L f4 or 24-75 L f.28 lenses. Not cheap lenses, but they'll put up with dust/sand/moisture better than the non-L lenses.
