I agree 100%. I actually have shot a wedding with 2 cameras, 2 shooters, and the first two of those lenses. The other lens was regrettably a DA 55-200 . . . this was a favor for a friend and we only had so much budget to rent lenses.

With the addition of the 50-135, or as mentioned, a 70-200 2.8, any headaches we encountered would have been mitigated. Of course, the best setup would have been to have 2 cameras *each*, and each of those lenses in our bags, or to have one person with an all-prime setup and the other person with the lenses you mentioned.

Indoor or outdoor wedding?

1. DA*16-50
2. DA*50-135
3. DA*55 for low light and isolation of subject with very nice out of focus backgrounds
4. DFA100 Macro for close-ups of rings, flowers and etc.

Yes, I know it is four and not three. so pick what is important and what isn't and leave behind the lens for the least important subjects.

DA*16-50 and DA*50-135 are required.
DA14 or DA*55 is optional.
