I don't think that Neuro will agree that the EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS is a 24-70mm (f/2.8 ) FF equivalent on a 1.6x crop. I think he said (and I completely agree with him) that the 24-105mm f/4 IS is the closest lens on FF to the 17-55mm f/2.8 IS on crop.

True, maybe not "equivalent" focal length. I think it is 27-88mm on a 1.6x. But considering aperture, I believe the 17-55mm f/2.8 is the closest substitute for the 24-70mm f/2.8 Ls.

Full time wedding shooter here, first time poster  :)

Most of my favorites are shot at the wide end of my 16-35mm v2.    see http://brianpowell.info 

 I've settled on this lineup:
two 5Diii bodies,  16-35 v2,  50 1.2, 70-200 f.28 v2, and the 100 2.8 IS macro.   

It's a great coverage, does everything I need, and also crosses over to other kinds of photography pretty well (portrait, mainly, but some landscape and fashion etc.)

dirtcastle:
Great shots, Brian!

I agree that a skilled shooter can get good results at the wide end. It's all about the composition (and keeping the bride away from those distorted corners ;-). I particular like when the wide shots look flat and have a painterly feel.
