    I was asked to take photos during an upcoming recording sessions for a neighbor who happens to be a great artist. At any rate I'm working with a 50d and have narrowed my choices down to two lenses; 17-55 f/2.8 is and the 24/70 f/2.8 is. Space is limited so I don't want to be peigon holed with a prime and the lightining won't be all that bright. I also don't want to bring my flashes as it might interfere with the artists.

    Am I on the right path and if not let me know your opinion.

    both are great lenses. Just a note, the 17-55 has IS, while the 24-70 f/2.8 doesn't.

    The 17-55 is cheaper and wider, but it's ef-s mount, so if you plan on moving up to a full framer camera anytime soon, you'd have to sell it.

    Don't want it to wide because I want to get some close ups without being in their face. I have a 10-22 that I'll probably use in between sets (when the light is up). Lensloaner is out of stock but I wouldn't mind owning one. I'll have to unload some of my gear as my son is draining the checking account fast lol
