    My main lens is a sigma 30 1.4 not because it’s a great lens but because I really like that focal length for weddings. At 35mm you can do portraits and pull back and get some great story shots. So for most situations, yes 35 will serve you well.

    Thx for your kind and fast replay.

    Actualy i dont realy have more mony to buy a faster lens and i need an autofocus one.
    My main concern is about the focal lenght. Is 35mm good for weddings? Can i do good in most situations whit 35mm?

    Sebastain- Great blog, really like the portraits.
    In short, it depends. With good light yes. With poor light no (Unless you are really experienced with flash.)
    The k-x is a perfectly capable camera for weddings.
    I can occasionally get a usable colored image at 3200 ISO but usually convert to black when shooting that high.
    If you have an outside wedding you will have no problem at 2.4 however if you will be shooting indoors you will wish for something a bit faster but still bight be able to get it to work for ya. That said, with limited funds sometimes you just have to make it work. On a side note, when I am not shooting for money, I permanently keep the M 50 1.7 on my camera. I would not hesitate to use that lens if you decide to do some posed shots and have time to foucs. O ya… Beg, barrow, steal whatever you have to do for another back up body.
    Hope that helps.

    I had seen your site, you are realy good!
    I understand thet you shot weddings, so I want to ask you, can i do ok at a wedding with petax k-x and the new 35 mm f 2.4? Also i have a metz flash and pentax kit lens + sigma 70-300 + pentax smc M 50 1.7. I also have an olympus ep-1 as a backup but i dont realy like it becouse it has the laziest focus i ever seen.
    But my question is, can i shot most of my shots whit 35 mm at a wedding? I cant afford right now more thet this lens, so no second body, and not an expensive lens.
