@mattdm I agree about the question. I wasn't sure what to ask as I think the answer would fall under the category of "a little bit of this and a little bit of that". Any recommendations? Feel free to edit the Question as you see fit

@dpollitt any interest in posting your comment as an answer so I can perhaps accept it. I think I'mgoing to purchase the 70-200 4L and the 17-85

@Itai there are no renting facilities close to where I live, and the event is next week. I appreciate the comment though. I already rent lenses when I go out and do landscape shots.

@JohnCavan Do you think I should retake the shot without my silhouette?
