I just found this too which I thought was pretty interesting.

Oh wow. That is quite humorous! Judge Brown really knows his stuff. "What F-Stop did you use?" "We used a tripod!"

[Edit] I just finished to the very end (my MIL was showing my baby photos of my husband, haha) and wow. They charged the women $2500?!

Sorry for being a few days late, but I noticed Photo 5 saying that the 28 - 300 was useless when the DJ turned out the lights and only had a single overhead disco type light on the dance floor. For me, a dark dance floor and disco light(s) are perfect; use 18-70, flash with rear shutter exposure over 1/10 second or so (experiment) - great pics capturing the colour and the movement but retaining the dim light. And as always with weddings, use RAW.

Welcome to Steve's.

I agree that this sort of lighting environment is good if used properly and I do a similar thing to get some movement, ambient light and the subject. I really wouldn't want to be using something as consumer as a 28-300 as I would want better focus and less distortion but the light is fine.

Mark the Sigma 50 - 150 did get me some nice images at that wedding with the disco type light.... I was just passing on my personel experience with that lens and f/s range of it and how it didn't work to well for me. If I do another wedding I would have a wider f/2.8 with me

That's good to hear and I would hope a nice lens like the Sigma would do the trick. I get away with f4 for my main lens and a 70-200mm f2.8 on the 2nd body. I'm thinking of using more primes and shooting natural light even more and getting more creative which is exciting.
