shopping list help

ok so im a wedding shooter. i make all of my money from my photography....and the economy is bad

so i dont have much to work with. however, i have about 13 weddings lined up this year and i want to get some new glass later.

im thinking about throwing the FA31 1.8 on one cam and the FA* 85 1.4 on another and just keeping the 16-50/50-135 combo on hand for times when i cant move.

I was also thinking about maybe going the zeiss route for the 85.....

not sure yet.

thanks for reading

No help on the lens suggestion, but I can help you with some marketing ideas. We can discuss this weekend.

going the zeiss route compared to the FA* would mean manual focusing.
