What type of christian are you? If you are catholic, you need f/1.4. If you are non-catholic, f/2.8 should be enough.

Catholic churches are traditional and usually tends to be darker due to reliance on natural light. The other denominations sometimes hold their services in large auditoriums with stage lights and are a bit more like a concert. But anyway, was just kind of kidding.

There is no dilemma really. You will have to get a few lenses to deal with different situations unless you intend to photograph only very specific subjects. And the most versatile is usually a combination of zooms and primes. None of the lenses are suited for every problem.

Primes really teaches me about composition. Ive gotten rid of all my zooms (10-22, 17-55, kit) for my current primes (35 1.4, 50 1.8 and 135 2.0). But if you are shooting weddings at a tight space, maybe it is more practical to have zooms la

I use all primes. From medium format to SLR to RF.
My fav range for 135format is the 40mm. Works well with almost any kind of genre. As for medium format, it would be the 50mm.
