Wow! Thanks everyone for the responses. I really appreciate the advice as well as set up ideas.


Seems like a 35 1.4 is the lens that keeps being mentioned. I was reading about the new Sigma art one the other night. Seems really good though a couple of user reviews mentioned that the Bokeh is bad. The 35L is about $300 more right now. Would it be worth spending the extra for the L?

I'd love to get the 70-200 2.8 that was mentioned, but it's out of my price range. I'm trying to stay less than $1000.

I love my little nifty-fifty, though I use the 85 more on the 5D and the 50 on the T2i. I'll probably pick up a nicer 50mm like the 1.4. 

I'm  limited to the one speedlight I have, and I definitely need to practice with it. Would a mini lens mount soft box be advisable?

A friend of mine has guilt tripped me into shooting his wedding. I warned him, over and over again, that I'm not a pro, can't guarantee anything, nor do I have the talent and equipment that a professional shooter does, but he insisted.

Still, I want to do the best I can. To that end, I have money to get one nice lens before I go to the wedding. It's going to be in the evening and the reception at night. Both out doors. What would you suggest?

My Current Gear:   5D MKIII and T2i  EF-S 18-155, EF-S 55-250, EF 50 1.8, EF 80 1.8, EF 28 2.8 IS, and 24-105 F/4 L , Speedlight 430EX

Anyone have any good pics from the Everglades?

This little guy was hiding in the morning light, following my boat as I fished. I purposely left it uncropped to give an idea of how well he blended.

This is the Grand Canyon at sunrise. I'm not a pro by any means, but it turned out pretty good..

On the floor. It can't fall any farther than that!
