| p.1 #1 · Nikon 14-24 F2.8 vs Nikon 16-35 F4 VR |
I am putting together a Nikon kit, after having taken a break from Weddings to work in Film. The last wedding I did, I was using medium format primes, so I am still trying to work out how I want to approach things now. I will cut/paste my current gear at end of post...
My question is, what do people think of the new Nikon 16-35mm F4 VR as a Wedding lens?
I am thinking about selling my Nikon 14-24 to purchase the 16-35, but I am wondering If F4 might be too slow? Of course if the 14-24 never gets out of the bag, maybe it doesn't matter if it's a stop faster? I was thinking the 16-35 could end up staying on the camera a lot more, maybe even replacing the 24-70 on one body. While using an 85mm F1.4, or 70-200mm 2.8 on a second body.
...Are you guys shooting altar groups and formals on a tripod? Because I was also thinking the 16-35 might work for shooting them hand held, dragging the shutter to as slow as 1/4th to pick up ambient, while freezing any subject movement with some off camera speedlights.
Sorry for the ramble, any thoughts?
