Also consider the Minolta 80-200/2.8 APO HS (white version that is), as suggested before. It is extremely fast and accurate. It is perhaps also a better lens than the 70200, though probably less resistant against lens flare compared to the SSM II version.

The Zeiss 85/1.4 is reportedly also excellent, but less versatile when shooting any action during a wedding (or any event that is). There are reports indicating that it may be a tad slow with focusing.

I am not sure many professionals would be happy relying on an old unsupportable lens for their income. The old Minolta lenses are also noisy, which can be a drawback in a social occasion.
