What would be a good lens for a wedding in a church that has not sufficiant light. I will be standing 10 - 15 feet for the main portraits and then in the back of the church for the rest of the service.
If you recomment two lens that is fine I want the best. Money not much of an option.
I have a Canon 20D currently.
Thankyou for any advice.

For the farther shots, a Canon ef 70-200 f2.8 IS ... a great lens, good in darker situations but best for somewhat more than 15 feet distance for portraits.

For a range of closer shots, the EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM.

These two sharp, high IQ lenses would provide you with a nice range meeting most all situations, but I think you will find that a flash with some kind of diffuser will really help, too. I use the Lightsphere as my diffuser, and I really do recommend the factory flash(580EX II) as it works transparently and is fairly powerful.

You did state, at least I think what you meant, wascost is no problem. While not inexpensive, these two lenses are outstanding!
