I would take 50mm f1.4 and 24-70 with D200 and a flash It deosn't matter what you bring to the wedding. It's your behavior that matter. I made friends with the paid photographer when I attended a wedding.
Remember, the better gear does not indicate you are good at photograph. so why concern???
Ben, beautiful portifolio. Zeiss is F2. If you are confortable with manual focus, I will get Zeiss. I had 105 VR before and I didn't feel it provides much benefit upon 70-200 VR. If I want a prime, I will always pick something faster than 2.8 because nowadays zoom is becoming better and better...
seems that let go 80-200 get most of vote. I have very steady hand but still find VR is very useful especially shooting slow subject. 105 DC f2 has such unique characters that 200 f2 VR has. Better keep it than regret. I don't need the cash. Too little to have any impact.
This weekend I will...

I will disagree.
D70s is a very fine camera serving as a second. I will buy 70-200 first.
I have both 70-200 VR and 80-200 ED AF-D. I like them both and keep both. I can hold VR at 1/30 at 200mm to get sharp photo. The 80-200 perform great at outdoor but definite not indoor.
there were two 200 vr for sale at FM. I almost bought one of them. Guess I was lucky to hold out. I usually buy from original owner and those two 200 VR happend to be second owners.
Cleaned sometime won't kill the fungus.
The clunk song comes from the rattle of loose "focus group" (80-200 is front focus). It is NOT normal. I had one used copy that rattle and returned it. Now I have a brand new one that absolutely no sound when slight shaked.
