    D90 + kit lens 18-105
    30mm 1.4 sig
    sb600

    I see that 'jcolman' has made the jump to common usage to = blow fat stacks on gear

    Like 'xerox' for copies, or 'kleenex' for tissue.

    just rent and shoot. After shooting 2 events, you'll know for yourself what works and what doesn't for your shooting style.

    My guess...you'll realise you ended up using 1 lens 80% of the time...decision made...no need to buy the other one.

    I just dropped a $1,100 on a 85 1.4... so, you know what my answer is going to be. :big grin:

    Get Canon so your gear will be enough for them.

    To be true to the jcolman name, you must suddenly forget you have The D90 + a few lenses and buy another set.

    Well, for a grand, you can probably get a doctor to look at that itch for you and prescribe a cream.

    This. Rent for 1 or 2 weeks so you can use them/it for the event then mess around to see if it is something you have further use for.
