    Don't forget 3-4 cameras around your neck to use them all. throw a 24-70 in there for when you're moving around like crazy or cant set up the shot.

    you just need two camera's... and shooting in dimly lit churches you need the extra f-stops provided by the primes over the zoom. Hell, I watched Sam Hassas fly through lenses on one 5dmkII during the wedding I assisted him on...
