I recommend a full set of Canon Cinema EOS lenses and the new 200-400L. Also new pants since your current pair have holes burned in the pockets.

It depends on how you see and what you want your results to look like. I normally shoot weddings, events and portraits with two bodies with a 24 on one and a 50 or 85 on the other. For the portraits, I also use a 135 f2. However, when it is time for dancing, I pull out the 16-35 to use with a pair of flashes to get cool shots.

My website if you want to check out the source: http://coryparris.com

Very nice pictures, and thank for the advice. I have one more question for you and for those who shoot primes. Do you shoot at open apertures like f2 or f 1.8 cosidering the DOF. I mean my zooms are great, but some times an extra f stop would be usefull to lower ISO. Thanks and once again, very nice pictures!

I usually shoot in the f1.8 to 2.0 range with occasional forays down to 1.4. f2.8 is stopped down for me. :)

I also shot a wedding this year that was 1/60 at f1.8 at ISO 10,000, so the extra stop or two of light is definitely nice at times.
