    OK so I am looking to buy a good lens for family portraits, weddings or any large group shot. I was looking at this one : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16830998374&Tpk=EF+17-40mm+f%2f4L+USM
    Do you think it would be a good choice? This lens would replace my 35-80mm I broke. Or is there another one around the same price that would work better?? Sorry if I am driving you guys nuts with all of the questions. Thanks, Mary

    The 17-40mm F4 L, is a great lens. No worries there.

    I'll also second the recommendation for the EF-S 17-55mm F2.8 IS. It's the best lens for wedding shooting (for that camera).
