I have an assignment in July to shoot an Indoor Wedding.
The room is all glass so I'm going to try to avoid flash.

I did some tests with my Sigma 17-70 F2.8-4.5. I took pictures in a house at mid-day.

My camera settings were Auto ISO 100-3200, 1/60 min.
Most indoors shots were at 3200 ISO @ 1/60 and a bit soft and noisy. Acceptable, but the outdoors shots were sharper at 100 ISO. 250ish shutter...

I want to try and pull down the ISO so I'm thinking about renting a Nikkor F2.8 Zoom lens. <--

I own a 50mm f1.8, but I feel that lens could limit my composition.
I was tinking a mid zoom, like my Sigma, but wider f-stop.

What would you recommend?
