Wedding photography set up thoughts?

Talk Equipment - www.talkphotography.co.uk
Hi all,

I'm just after some additional thoughts to my own about my camera and lens set up for photographing weddings.

Currently I mainly use a Canon 6D and have use of my wife's 760d. So one full frame and one crop sensor camera.

My lenses at the moment are:

Sigma 35mm f1.4 Art

Canon 85mm f1.8

Sigma 24-105mm f4 Art

Sigma 105mm f2.8mm Macro

I am thinking about adding the Sigma 50mm f1.4 Art to my collection. The thought being that if I had the 35mm on the 6D and the 50mm on the 760d, that would effectively give me a focal distance set of 35mm and 80mm (aps-c). The other lenses would be swapped when needed. For example, the 85mm could be put on the 760d to give 136mm focal distance.

I did have a Sigma 70-200 f2.8 but it was just a bit on the heavy side (I know, I should just man up!).

I also have a Sigma 17-50mm f2.8 but it took a leap from a shelf and is now very much broken! It was a nice lens though (27-80mm f2.8 on the crop).

1. Stick with what I have

2. Buy the Sigma 50mm

3. Replace the Sigma 17-50 or buy the canon 17-55

4. Wait and buy another full frame camera so I can use the current 35mm and 85mm that I already have

Now I have completely confused myself again and probably you, any thoughts are welcome.

Basically I am just looking for a good range of prime focal lenghs but open to ideas about zoom lenses.

Thanks!

Mike
