Lens Rental Recommendation
« on: August 19, 2013, 10:19:53 PM »
I am going to be taking pictures at a 50th birthday party.  It's for family but I wanted to make certain I have a decent lens to capture it.

I will be using T2i and I have a Speedlite 430EX II.  Lens I do have that I think I could use are a Canon 40 panacake; Canon 50 1.8; Sigma 18-250 DC HSM; I also have a Canon 100L but don't think that would be of much use for this situation.

I was thinking of renting a Canon 24-70 2.8 but I am not certain if that is the best lens I should rent.
I am the best photographer in the world using the camera I own. To keep it that way no one else can ever use my camera.

Rent the EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8.  Try pics with and without the flash (with is ok if there are relatively low white ceilings for bouncing). 
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

Is this a good place to lament the absence of a fast, wide angle prime for APS-C?

I used to use Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 for my 7D.  For me, this is a L lens without red ring.
